When’s soon?

Wide solemn eyes,
contemplating the chocolate bar he’s chomping on,
cross-eyed.
His towheaded pageboy tops an oversized
blue oshkosh hooded sweatshirt.
As he munches his chocolate bar,
he kicks his small feet in sandals so large
his toes are nearly invisible.

“When does the train leave?”
“Soon.”

A pause.ย  Another bite of chocolate.

“When’s soon?”
