Ahava Has a Friend (COVID)

We are different from one another in the country.

Family in a trailer down the road

mother in her twenties three children

nine year old girl plays with Ahava here just a child

says what she hears  knows what a child knows

We all want Ahava to play

with everyone no matter who

their mother is no matter what

they know.   When Noah was a stand up

comic he had a friend named Monroe

grew up in the projects came for his

first Hanukah. We gave him  latkes.

I’m never eating one of these again, he said.





Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
