It’s already 10:30 and I haven’t written a poem (COVID)

For no good reason I haven’t yet written a poem.

Writing teacher once said the most important thing you can give your readers

not thing never use thing the most important part of writing is reason:

What is the reason  the character killed his victim?

What is the reason  the protagonist left her home?

What is the reason I haven’t yet written this poem?

Maybe because last night after we picked up Khanyi from the Hudson train

station and went  for a delicious in season soft shell crab dinner

and our waitress told us about her two sons

and I didn’t 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.


      1. this is the interview where we appeared all three together, sorry, for writing riddles. I would comment your poetry more often, I like it, but I don’t have needed skills, I read how others do it 🙂
