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.


  1. Obama meant it, too. He is so proud of young people who get involved. I’ll never forget the phone calls he made to campaign offices during the 2008 and 2012 elections, telling all of us but the kids especially how magnificent they were.
