Leonard Cohen’s

beloved sister Esther

got enough press to satisfy

even her.

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. I had a friend named Ellen Levene ( actually, I had two, one of them was a Levine), nd she assembled the others who were in New York ,about 12 or so, for a couple of annual Ellen Levene/Ellen Levine luncheons. They weren’t, by and large, s interested as she ws, and the whole thing fell apart. Good poem.
