Gideon 54, Collins 42 Maine (COVID)

One more day until Jewish new year

chance we all deserve everyone

to begin again.   We were all

innocent of pandemics at the start of 2020,

drank champagne and then a few months later,  watched

each other breathing.  When we admitted

at last the horrors of our histories then marched together

wearing masks and discussing how to make change happen

when we, so many of us committed to ending this terrible time

of Republicans and misunderstandings, when we hold onto the

words of Bob Woodward, read poll after poll, and understand

that every single new year, no matter what the circumstances, every

single new year is about hope.

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.
