Grocery List (3/23/17)

Jack Padgett

Pringles,

Bananas,

Peanut Butter,

Thumbtacks,

Salt,

Loose-leaf paper,

Streamers,

Cake mix (devil’s food),

A John Green novel,

Happiness for another,

Some sort of affirmation,

That I’m doing,

Something right,

Because I don’t know,

If I am,

I think I am,

But I don’t know if I am,

Eggs,

Ritz crackers (round ones),

Cereal,

Plastic cutlery,

My husband,

Says he loves me,

I know he loves me,

But what if,

He doesn’t,

Dry shampoo,

My mind is a dangerous,

Place,

Because it’s easy,

To get lost,

In there,

Orange juice,

Babybels,

Paper plates,

What if I left it,

All behind,

I wouldn’t be missed,

But I would,

He would miss me,

Right,

I’d miss myself,

I’d miss my life,

But is it even a life,

At all,

Cooking spray,

They’re staring at me,

They’re all staring at me,

This shirt has,

A hole in it,

I knew I shouldn’t have,

Put it on in the,

First place,

But I pretended,

Like I didn’t care,

But I do,

I do, I do care,

I care about it all,

I care about him,

But does he care,

About me,

Lays (family size),

Bacon,

Is it all,

A ruse,

A cleverly constructed,

Game,

But I guess I’ll,

Shut up and do,

What I came here,

To do,

Grapes,

Tablecloth,

Paper letters (T, Y, L, E, and R),

Wrapping paper,

Tape,

And probably a candy bar
