FALLING

My neighbor LECCO who has been a male prostitute across the hall for 32 years

and had some celebrity clientele even I recognized them in the elevator as well as a Long Term Relationship with Wayne my neighbor Bick who is very handsome told me a week ago that he has at last FALLEN IN LOVE with a married man he met at a hardware store of all places.  Lecco is not a hardware kind of guy.  They Got Together over drinks and then They Got Together at Bick’s apartment which is right in front of ours and I got in the elevator when The Married Man was going to work with his briefcase and I saw them say goodbye.

Jake is still handsome at 78.  He was handsome at 77 too.  This year his third wife decided she did not want to be married anymore.  Too much bother she said.  I’m sure that’s not the whole story but that’s the story Jake Told Me.  He emailed Annabeth a woman he’d met at in a writing group.  She lives in New Hampshire.  Jake’s in Charleston.  They decided to go to a conference together in Marseille.  Jake said his expectation is not Falling in Love.  He’s hoping for four days of a good time.

 

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.
