Surely by B.T. Stanwitz
Do others think as he thinks, he thinks. Surely, if they did, the streets would be impassable with stumbling bodies flapping their arms in the air like wind-tattered flags, their throats retching all-manner of inhuman wails. Surely, there’d be mothers with babies folded at their chests sobbing in doorways. Surely, they’d be fathers punching walls and grabbing the collars of preaching philosophers, shaking the answers from their mouths. Surely, no one would care again for pennies and things, and no-one would rest until the answers hung in neon from the city’s highest buildings: That’s what he thinks, he thinks. Surely.
