Mubarakobama

Mubarakobama

Sunlight now
Violence in Egypt
Unlouver the shades,
Gurney the injured.
Coffee stimulation warmth and molotovs
Flagbearers, burnt automobiles
Barricades and unfolding the morning newspaper.
A cat brushes my ankles
While a dog barks off a soldier.
CNN streaming onto my laptop
A young man's bleeding head nestles in his mother's lap.
