Egg Man by Philip Burton

he took his car on an acid trip 
on an icy pan of road 
with friends like 
eggs in a kettle, trying to get out
a slip-road joined like a knife 
across the neck 
they found him heaving 
the roof metal back into shape
trying to replace the top 
of the egg again 
so all was safe inside 
untouched, warm, waiting 
for the salt

I like the metaphor and that it can be read on different levels
