Ova Confident

In the beginning was the yolk and it was heavy

On circular references 
the question that begs
preceding or leading
chickens or eggs

Just as day follows night
or night follows day
I ignore the dilemma 
when eating soufflé

Now consider our puzzle
let this moment encroach
the first egg in question
is to boil fry or poach

So good in the morning
as a breakfast preamble
with salmon or haddock
or plainly just scramble

Which truly came first
one is bound to agree
one’s eggs are best early
then it’s chicken for tea
