It’s hard not to think

Jennifer Lawrence is spreading jam
across the middle of her toast
and it’s hard not to think about how
that’s how Jennifer Lawrence
spreads jam across her toast.
But that’s not how Jennifer Lawrence
spreads jam across her toast,
it’s how Jennifer Lawrence thinks
Kate Dibiasky spreads jam
across her toast if Kate Dibiasky existed.
I can’t remember the last time
I spread jam across some toast.
I walked to the shops this afternoon
and I don’t know how I got there.
Leonardo DiCaprio is writing on a whiteboard
in handwriting he’s not sure if it’s his.
