I Hope You’re Not

writing another one of your

damn poems with Arabs in it

because you know how people feel

about Arabs and poems.

Jews too, for that matter.

 

Dear Something Like God

Please put Arabs and Jews together

at least in one peaceful poem

with jokes

and infinite cups of coffee

Amen

Awomen

 

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.
