Do I cut the red wire or green wire first?!

You can rush children.
I’ve spent half my life doing it
Clapping a crisp, “move move!”
as my already hurried children scramble
into the mini van.
Time is like a bomb about to go off.

The elderly, on the other hand,
will not be rushed.
They move at dream sequence pace
so I must Stop
Still
Deep breath
Exhale
Smile
Wait

I am defused
Why hurry at all?
