Hillary, Bernie, and Donald Trump

Hillary, Bernie and Donald Trump
scores of people
discuss them on our flatscreen
strangers
on the subway
do not discuss
their love lives
just Hillary and Bernie,
and then,
Donald Trump
about how
qualified Hillary is
how Bernie stands for
what we all do
yes public education
should be free
yesterday I shared
a cab with a woman
Hillary or Bernie
she said when she got in
and we did not mind
the traffic jam
another opportunity
to debate our
familiar litany
inevitable conclusion
could Trump ever win
and even though
it’s a while away
I look
forward to Hillary
or Bernie and all of us
discussing
our love lives
once again.

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.
