"Cold Morning in Santa Fe"

as I slip on a flannel shirt
my mind joins the 2 million
in Tahrir Square

technology makes me
part of the protest

by the time legs fit into jeans
I'm in Ely Park
twirling in the snow
I walk a block to a coffeehouse
where poets gather to read forever

my body isn't in Cairo
it isn't in Elyria
but I'm in both at once
knowing the world's no bigger
than a spitball
whizzing past me
in Mrs. Beck's class
