I Am Often a Book Doctor and A Woman Wrote a Book

And she is looking not just for a reader an agent

a publisher who will understand the story she wants to tell

she came over yesterday to tell me that she wrote

a book (so did Felix who called this morning.  He said about his

that it’s a Tell All and He Doesn’t.) she is looking for a way

to make her life permanent what is permanent I asked  and she

smiled at me in that How Can You Not Know The Answer

To That way her book is not a memoir although it is based

on something that happened to her and she didn’t want to say WHAT

because she thought that might spoil my reading her 74,000 words

as soon as possible.  She said that’s what she hopes.


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.
