the splat! of an egg

An egg, sitting in the palm of my hand
jumped out of my pale, slender fingers
Breath sucked in and muscles tensed
I scrambled to catch it
in mid air and then gravity,
delivering it to my recently polished floor
It's white shell spuming forth
the clear slimy ooze
gathered around an orange bubble
of unfertilized yolk
