Being a poet - Jenny Bornholdt

Yesterday I bought
a blender — blue — from
Briscoes, just like
Marion’s. Today
we’re dealing with the big
issues, like:  How the World
Can We Have Fruit Loops
For Breakfast?

Friends ask
what I’m reading.
By the bed is Go, dog. Go.
We looked at it this morning
just before our fight
over the nature of
Weetbix.  But it’s soggy
every morning
, I hear myself say
that’s just what Weetbix does
that’s just its way
