How many people on Earth,
are, at this moment,
thinking the exact same thing,
at the exact same time as me?

just had an overwhelming desire
for tomato soup and grilled cheese.
Or who else just cursed as they stubbed their toe
on the door of their bedroom …
and suddenly I feel very small
because I can no longer
throw my hands up in anguish
and say, “No one understands me!”
Because they do.
Because someone else, somewhere else
