Why I Don’t Write a Poem about John McCain (although I did)

So many opinions everyone has one

about John McCain and brain cancer

and what he did and didn’t do and whether

he should go to hell or whether we should

forgive him because he has brain cancer and he

is going to die anyway.  Forgiveness a lifetime obsession.

Are there people we should never forgive?

Say John McCain? Maybe forgiveness has no

limits. Even for John McCain.

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.
