Finding

Easy to get lost disappear into lunch

into dinner into drinks at a new place up the street

into work what has to be done

if you believe there is a list

that mandatory is a good word

responsibilities and everyday

easy not to paint your painting to write your poem

to sing your song but one day maybe in winter

when it’s 28 degrees when Siri finds the phone

when two friends had a birthday the day before

one day when you could actually sleep the night before

for no good reason no sleep podcasts melatonin meditation

you just closed your eyes and slept the way some people do

one day for no good reason you woke up and there it was:  the song.

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.
