Geological Survey

Going through
the strata layers
of papers
on my desk,
I watched whole
months go by.
Bills for things
I don’t even
have anymore,
credits cards,
medical bills
that will never
go away…

And at the bottom,
waiting for me
like a sinister old friend,
was the thing
that got the pile started
in the first place.

when you
take apart
a landslide.

-GD Butler
