Beyoncé popping a spot

When I take the bins out I imagine George Clooney
separating his card from his plastics.
I like picturing Dame Judi Dench fishing a seed
out of her back teeth with her tongue
or Samuel L. Jackson putting trainer socks on.
Do you reckon Victoria Beckham has ever
pressed 1 to speak to an operator?
I often think about Beyoncé popping a spot,
Anthony Hopkins sharpening a pencil,
Drew Barrymore changing a duvet cover
and you being here long enough
to pay your own council tax.
