falling and sticking, on repeat

everyone’s running
out of time
the first of a brand

there are surprises
that tuck themselves neatly into
sunday afternoons

as if they were always meant
to be, easy, reassuring

at this street corner – a surprise
not to be surprised

it’s almost always
a surprise, coming upon
fishermen, counting,

sorting, measuring, debating
over, waiting for their catch

on the tip of your
tongue are words you save up to
say, like a demure

posy, a surprise learning
