I Went to the Eye Doctor in Catskill Yesterday (COVID)

My glasses broke so I made an appointment with Dr. Christine

Scrodanus in Catskill New York  receptionist said

If My Temperature was not good I would have to leave

97.6 and I could go into the eye glass shop

to meet with Dr. Scrodanus,  pleasant looking woman in

a yellow dress, maybe 50 maybe more, wearing her mask

nice eyes as befits an Eye Doctor she said I don’t know

you BUT I know just which glasses are for you I have been

Doing This for 29 years and  brought out a perfect

pair a little Elton Johnish a little Janis J. if she wore glasses

she said These Will Be Appropriate for Your Lifestyle

and I tried them on large almost yellow translucent frames

and ordered them from Dr. Christine Scrodanus.

You won’t regret this she said.

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. Esther, loved this confident doctor–and you poem.
    I bet those light yellow glasses will be the ticket!

      1. I know I can, at times, amuse people…. But I never thought I’d be a Muse… What a great compliment… I’m more than flattered… ️
