Kay Said

This morning Kay said

we talk every Wednesday in the morning

Kay is 92 1/2 she lives her life

every single day the way she can she was getting

her third masters degree at Manhattanville College

I loved her when she walked into

my funny little office said she’s a writer she writes about her

many children her full life her friends  what she knows she knows

more than 92 years Kay said this morning

a friend of hers came to visit who is

95 ramrod straight maybe because she was born in Germany

maybe not her friend has a 100 year old Swedish boyfriend and Kay

does not ask what they do together but that doesn’t matter but Kay said

he’s a good boyfriend.


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.
