Fall and all attendant memories
Crowd the day with unrelated histories
Each year leaves its unresolving fantasies

To hang around each corner
Hang around each street

Thick with ghosts, the wind whips round in circuitries
Carrying words as strangers exchange pleasantries
Do they intrude upon your private reveries?

As they meet you on each corner
Meet you on each street

Watch for daily braveries
Notice newfound courtesies
Finger sudden legacies

As they clean up every corner
Wash down every street

Mark the month and all its anniversaries
Put away the draft of all your eulogies
Clear the way for all your private memories

As they meet you on each corner
Meet you on each street
Make the time for all your possibilities
They live on every street
