Egg tooth

a forever... or two ago
mother fled the nest
 she left behind only one firecracker colored feather
which I keep to this day
 
the days are cold inside my egg
 thick walled fortress of unborn memories
I scratch against the sides to mark the days
her days..our days

brother sits beside me half-hatched
a silly egg cap curving his little bird back
he saw a little of to much,
I saw to much of nothing

I like to think she took some momento of her past
to wherever she landed,
 a twig, a piece of shell,
maybe a chorus of deep black peeps
or perhaps an egg tooth... or two 
that tap against her eggshell skull
