Ariana is a Hairdresser Down the Road

Many bird tattoos Ariana loves birds grew up

in Catskill has a boy friend from Puerto Rico they went

to help after the hurricanes her boyfriend works on boats

whole family supports this president whose name is not

in poems she said her grandmother in Cairo is the only

one who says no and that’s because her grandmother

is Jewish but she found Jesus a while ago though she’s

still Jewish even married a Jewish man from Cairo

New York and she prays every single day

works in Head Start celebrates all holidays Jewish

and Christian you know said Ariana it’s the Jewish

New Year soon and she’ll make a brisket for us all.

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.


  1. I have a friend who had a Catholic father and Jewish mother. When asked if she was one or the other, she said, “ No, , we celebrated all the food! “
