Last Night at Dinner Howard Said

Howard who is maybe 92 or 93

said that he was on the bus and a woman

with many shopping bags maybe she

was homeless she said after he handed her

five dollars she was asking for money on the bus

she said to him Are You on a Fixed Income

and he said No but she didn’t believe him

and she said Here’s Three Dollars Change

Why Don’t You TakeĀ Another Dollar he said

and she said OK.


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.
