Ask Me Anything

A title that could be for any poem I have ever written.

(One of the side benefits of Peters movie this weekend (!!!!) )

Two close friends
Emily and Emilie
Richmond and Paris
Emily from Richmond,
haven’t seen
in more than 20 years
(25? 30?)
good friend in college
roommate in New York. We
lived where I
still live right now.
What I’ll do
she said
because we
only have a few hours
I’ll give you a
list of categories and you
can tell me
what you want
me to explain.
Don’t say
all of them.
Pick a few.
Marriage One
Marriage Two
Children
Love Life
Work
Sickness
Politics
My Dog
What I Did Do
What I Didn’t Do
Why I’m Not an Actress
Food
and then she said add
a category if you like
but don’t
go overboard.

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.
