stepsMostly what we leave behind is trash, or seen as trash.

Decades of it, in this way time can be measured downwards,

down into the mulch of treasured things displaced by

one year or a hundred out of all use —

stripped of an entity to recognise it

any object is trash – down there

so long it becomes food

accruing usefulness

in the dark.
