Beautiful Saturday in November (COVID)

Exhaustion and these difficult days

how could anyone still vote for him

how do we talk to one another now

become a we again

change dialogue and the senate

impossible electoral college and

today,  Saturday in November, birthday of my

old friend Abby Glazer, a beautiful day

warm enough to meet a friend for coffee

today, maybe the day Joe Biden will become

president at last,  we will turn off

all news and walk through the park and have

Negronis to celebrate that some of this is over

and that there is today.



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.
