Kol Nidrei

Sometimes I go to a service

5,000 people at the Jacob Javits Center

hear  Kol Nidre  three times

in a gigantic room on top of the Hudson River

sometimes I sit on the brown couch in our orange living

room listening to John Zorn or a Famous Cantor

on my laptop an arbitrary decision no solid reasons

behind the way I listen the way I repent the way I say sorry

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.
