Good Material

The way flowers from Manuel he sells

from the dry cleaners are part of our life

so now is MSNBC   every

single day  something to protest

appointments resignations Russian

spies who writes this life last night

another difficult litany so we watched

modern Orthodox matchmaking

instead appealing woman with ten

children  knows a good match from a bad one

how to find the right partner part

intuition she says we watched her talk to

a 33 year old comedian with a club in Jerusalem

she tried to understand what stand up is

he didn’t try to make her laugh that didn’t stop her

“I’ll find you someone who can laugh,” she said.






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.
