Someone said “surely”,

and it started him thinking.

Surely the sun is shining somewhere,

and surely some streets

are carrying cars

where they wish to go.

Surely someone is taking a step

that needs to be taken,

and surely a clock is clicking

with precision

even while storms surely

start their proceedings

in the distance.

Surely girls in Westerly

will sing today,

because surely there's music

at the center of sorrow,

and surely these words

will shine,

wither, and wilt

like fall’s leaves.
