Body Parts

At class last week

I teach  people tell stories

living a life

what happened on the way to now

at class last week they are all retired

lets start

with body parts  limit

yourself to one problematic

part  knees hips feet clear winners but

then we moved on

to how Elsa,  professional jitterbugger she

dances 5 nights a week  met her husband

in the eighties at Lincoln Center outdoor party

she danced over to him because he

was a better jitterbugger  there

wasn’t a single day she was sorry.

 

 

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.
