Hard Boiled Eggs

You start them cold or let them warm in air.
You poke a hole in each, or maybe not.
You put the eggs in water, or you spare
them till it’s seething, simmering and hot.
Attempting to maintain the heat you got,
perhaps you then contend with cracks as well,
a blooming white that ribbons in the pot.
And finally you try removing shell.
