Almost

The Oxford Dictionary

ran a contest

for words we dislike most

MOIST won unfavorite words

I don’t think MOIST

is all that bad. Almost always

struck me as a Big Sad

Unfortunate Word.

Man on the bus

I remember his uncomfortable coat

funny unflattering blue

man on the bus said

maybe 30 years ago

after hello  he said

I Almost Had a Life.

 

 

 

 

 

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.
