ALARIK WOULD HAVE BEEN 77 TOMORROW

 

 

When we all met

Lory and Alarik

Bruce and Cliff

Peter and Noah and me

dinner at our house

minutes ago and years

when we all met the first

of thousands of meals who knows what we ate

who knows what we said

we laughed ate meat Alarik loved meat

vegetables less

lets say we had a delicious

Price Chopper steak

ice cream too Lory baked a

perfect dessert maybe chocolate

here we were in this imperfect

perfect place all of us for

something like forever

 

 

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.
