Spread Too Thin

The pat of creamy, yellow butter
is expected to last
past the center of the toasted bread,
over the deep ravine
that exists on the left,
all the way to the very edge 
of toast civilization.
But halfway through
its progression,
despite the warmth,
the fluidity,
it becomes very clear
that there's not enough--
not nearly enough--
to satisfy anyone. 
The pat of creamy, yellow butter
is spread too thin once again.
