We Are in Cape Town (Day 1)

Life is

First homeless person,
white blonde woman,
carried this sign:
Help me.
My husband was
abducted by
And that’s not
a good thing.

Eddie our waiter
at Arnold’s restaurant
African from Cape Town:
“Life is ironic.
I want to work
at the Marriott Hotel

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.
