I Believe (a non-manifesto)

(thank you Jessica)


As long as we are able

to be here, right here, in this room,

as long as we are together, you and you

and me and me, as long as we

can meet for a glass of wine maybe even

a Negroni, as long as you are ready and willing

and able enough and I am too

as long as we can eat together

even just a cookie

or two any kind of cookie and then,

maybe write it down.



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.
