While the boy sucked on sugar cubes
while Susan huddled under the bridge out of the rain
while Thomas doubted
while the bus driver watched in disbelief
while the husband thought of nothing
while the stench of peanut butter wafted up
while Penelope wandered the streets looking for love
while hundreds and hundreds of ants invaded
while Joseph became irritated by triviality
while mustaches quivered
while Megan poured cereal into a rather large bowl
while french fries fried in a grimy McDonald's
while rest area restrooms were closed for renovation
while a hungry bear searched for food
while the villagers played soccer
while Johan cuddled the kitten he found in the ditch
while the planets kept spinning and the universe expanding,
I prayed for an end to this poem
and you hoped for resolution.
