Len’s Choices (COVID)

Walking home from the farmer’s market

I saw Len again a homeless man who sits

on a bench on 76th and Columbus.  “I’m hungry

today,” said Len.   He says this every day.

“What are my options today?”

I open my bags for Len.  “Not much of a selection,”

he says.  “I guess I’ll take the ruggelech.”

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.
