Don’t Walk

It’s interesting
At the sidewalk crossing
the’Don’t Walk’sign comes on
and the green light switches on the otherside.
The man besides me stops,
turns around,
walks back to the button for the crosswalk,
and starts pushing it.
Repeatedly.
As if the light will just suddenly turn back to red
and the sign would turn to ‘Walk.’
I wonder what God he believes in.
