Coincidences April 28 (CV)

I met Alfie years ago through a woman

named Ellen I met on the bus she was talking about massages

just like that and she said Do You Want the Best Massage

You’ve Ever Had in Your Life and I can’t say exactly why

I trusted Ellen about the massage maybe because she was

older and not in excellent condition she had no apparent life philosophy

probably didn’t even take Vitamin D and I love massages

liked Ellen well enough to take down the number in my

notebook so I wouldn’t lose it actually called Alfie when I got home

and made an appointment for a massage Have Two Hours Free

he said which seemed unbelievable and I went to his small apartment

full of my favorite flea market magic and was actually there for Three Hours

and told Alfie I’d be back and did go a few more times and then years

intervened the way they can and we found one another again Before Corona

and I had another perfect long long massage and he called yesterday

to say that I had to listen immediately to Raul Esparza singing

Hallelujah and I listened and listened and thought about this crazy time

we’re living in now. And coincidences. And songs.
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.


  1. Whoa… What a performance. Blew me away.

    Is Alfie taking new, post-coronavirus, massagees? and how would I reach him?

    Hope you guys are well.
