We were supposed to spend this week

in Ecuador  little like Peru friends said we loved Peru

last Saturday in a bar in Mystic Connecticut before Peter’s screening

woman behind us asked a man how his daughter

was in Quito our destination

Under Lockdown for a Week he said

Can’t Leave Her Room and although we had books

about Ecuador we don’t know

about much of the world  canceled

our tickets although American Airlines continued

to fly to Ecuador We Don’t Pay Attention to Anything

Except Airports said the Customer Representative

home for a week we hadn’t expected tried hard

to pay attention to more than airports.



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.
