Going to the Eye Doctor and My Prescription

I’ve known him over 40 years

not until yesterday did he tell me his longtime partner best friend from school

charming funny he was a gonIf yiddish word for thief took his money many other people’s

too in jail now  I asked if he would visit him can he

forgive him he said no and we talked about whether there’s anything

that shouldn’t be forgiven he said his daughter in law wrote a very good book

on restorative justice  I should order the book in case

there was anyone I had to forgive.

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.
