Boy at the Intersection

As I waited for red hand to white man
a boy
(6th grade?)
hopped off the bus, slammed his fist into the WALK button
and kept toddling the opposite direction.
Rude. He prolonged my stay.
I wiped the sweat from my forehead.
That kid with a hand in a Cheetos bag. What was with that kid?
Did he know he was causing unneeded ruckus?
A little "screw you" to "the man"?
Or did he just see a silver
and itch
to press it?
