Eva Said

that when she was a young crossing guard

in Staten Island  a paid job she became

a professional crossing guard after they tried her out

for a while when she was a young crossing guard

a man walked across the street in a certain way

a policeman she looked at him he looked at her

he was just crossing her street

and she married him

45  year mistake said Eva but

she’d do it again.

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.
