Vain Stupid Omelet

Please do not
make fun of
the words
I used in Scrabble—
vain
stupid
omelet—
as they are better
than my usual
3-letter fare.
The next morning,
at the diner,
the omelet upon
my plate said,
“I’m the most ravishing
thing in here by far,
and I care not one fig
if I don’t know the
capital of California
or the sum of two plus two,
for I am about to die
a most beautiful death
upon this plate.”
