Bullshit Anniversaries

When a whale
washes dead
on your bathroom floor
let me tell you
you're going to need help
Think about who you call
You only have a minute
Then the windows
blow wide open
A march of investigation
People with jobs
you've only heard about
in your driveway
in your hall
up and down
notepads and stares
All night long
while you hide on the floor
in the farthest room
hurdled against
