That instant when the world’s
heart fell silent from fear
but quickly rushed forth in
jubilation, dragged on for an
eternity for the homeless
children with no computers
to worry about and no
high-tech toys to plug in.

Then the party roared!
So did stomachs.
Did you collapse on a street corner
from too much booze
or because that’s your bed
and the policeman made you keep
walking all day?

No loitering. Time is precious.
Every instant is an eternity for someone.
