How to Live

My friend Delores we’ve been friends

since the first time she visited

she walked in and was a lifetime friend how does that

even happen why can some people be right there

Delores has many physical problems other problems

too she is always always beautiful not just her face

her heart is right there and when she

called this weekend to say she’d had some teeth removed

she also said she cooked for her son and his wife

and we should come too she was keeping a dog for the weekend

for a friend she bought an outfit for Ahava and she’d put up

some Easter decorations already because she likes chickens and Easter and eggs.

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. LOVED IT!!! you captured what feels like the essence of the moment, Delores, and your relationship.


    Thank you, dear Esther!!! What a gift!!
