Marshmallow Test

Between you and me
I am not used to waiting
Countless marshmallows proved me this

In bathrooms, I don’t wait for stalls to be available
I know what ‘Occupied’ means
I look for other options

In restaurants, I have a plan B
When my usual table is taken
Or my usual order is eighty-sixed

In coffee shops, I get antsy
When it takes my tea two more minutes to be ready
When I am usually set at waiting for just three

But to tell you the truth
This thing, between you and me
Astounds me

Because I can’t bring myself
To look for other options
Even when it’s clear enough
That you will never be available
