Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon (COVID)

(or, Jack Said I Could Write Some REVIEWS in verse)


In an attempt to end our feeling that every night

we should watch Something Somehow Guaranteed

To Be Good,  Meaningful or Funny or One of the

Movies Serious Critics Take Seriously we chose

the Bob Fosse series last night.  Because he can dance.

Because she can too.  Because of Sam Rockwell

and Michelle William Wonderful Both. Still

it was hard to watch What a Shmuck Bob Fosse was

and how, for her own reasons, she helped him to succeed.

He thought he could  Get Away With Everything

Because He Could Dance.


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.
