Poem with an explanation: standing outside

standing outside
checking the time again
waiting two more minutes
and then a call
there’s probably a reason


In this poem, a person thinks they may have been stood up for a date.

The person in the poem is standing outside the place where the date is to take place (standing outside).  Their date is late and they have checked the time multiple times while they have waited (checking the time again).  They set a threshold time to wait for before calling to see why their date isn’t there.  That time is two minutes away (waiting two more minutes).  They want to believe their date is not there for a reason other than they have been stood up (there’s probably a reason).
