Can I Write

Always that:  blank page right there

page  just waiting for words

and then, the question of those words:

if I were honest what I think I want to be

what I hope I want to be

telling the truth using words

as true as words can be

and if I weren’t controlling the story

just letting it emerge the way stories can

blank pieces of paper and time and forgetting about

everything else for an hour or two or three

forgetting too the story I often tell the story I know well

and just sitting in one place for a while.



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.
