DIDIER BONGO AND ESTHER COHEN

Didier Bongo
Benin born taxi driver
he told me today
there are no Esther Cohens in Benin
but he is not
the only Didier Bongo.
Maybe, he said,
New York is the only place
for us both.

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.
