Identity Protection – Samantha Jones

A pile of receipts is
soaking in the sink.
     Shopping habits lift
and bleed from the
high-gloss beaver lodge
sitting on stainless steel,
shedding paper curds
down the drain and
               into the trap.

Or dissect each slip
along its prime meridian
then its equator.
          Rip it up
into tiny continents,
throw away half
this garbage day.
