“I Wrote a Good Omelet” also shows Giovanni at her playful best. The speaker has had a spectacularly jolting encounter with love and has everything confused. She tells the reader, “I goed on red . . . and stopped on green . . . after loving you.” In short, things were never the same but were filled with ecstasy, passion, and delight.
Stylistically, “I Wrote a Good Omelet” is representative of the entire collection Those Who Ride the Night Winds. In this book, the poems are longer, more prosaic, and frequently punctuated with ellipses. Furthermore, they mark a continued growth in the poet, at once becoming more introspective and showing an even more pronounced spirit of the individual than previous poems.
