Last Night’s Dream was about Beryl Goldberg (What Does It Mean)

Beryl Goldberg (I haven’t seen her in a while

a good photographer) said I could use her

washing machine so I did. But then she called me,

angry, afterwards to say Not That This is a Big Deal But

you left a big piece of cake on top of the

washing machine and I had to throw it away.

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 morning I was so happy as I looked at my washer and dryer. In 64 years I’ve never owned my own before. Sooo you can leave cake on them anytime you want and use them at your leisure. We’ll take pictures.

  2. She asked us: “what does it mean?”
    How many will reply?
    The answer is quite clear.
    Beryl Goldberg certainly knows how
    To look a gift horse in the mouth!

  3. so: lets set the record straight. 1. I have never owned a washing machine nor do I aspire to owning one. 2. maybe you were channeling the other Beryl Goldberg who sadly left this world a few years ago. If it was her did she have any messages for those of us who are still here? 3. If you left me a piece of cake I would have been delighted (as long as it was white with coconut icing or chocolate chocolate ). 4. hONORED TO TURN UP IN YOUR POETRY FOR THE SECOND TIME. 5. Is there some profound significance to this?
