Like and Love and Some People

not a Noah Baumbach fan

Marriage Story last night

liked it enough my favorite actress

from Nurse Jackie played Scarlett J.’s sister

and I wondered about whether it is possible

to dissect Like and Love to really know why

Some People for instance the woman who came

to visit yesterday she came with friends to

an impromptu writing class in the living room

told her story about living in the car with her dog

for 18 months on 233 Street in the Bronx near the cemetery

some people you just Love Right Away not because

of their story although for sure that is a part of love

and then some people, Adam Driver with A Very Good Nose

some people you Like Well Enough

but it doesn’t much matter if you see him ever again


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. As someone who has experienced a divorce, I found the opening scene when each of the partners are asked by the mediator to write their positive thoughts about the other, and the closing scene where the son reads what she wrote about him with a blurry Scarlett Johansson in the background, very moving.

    The film is currently rated #2 after “The Irishman” by the Israeli critics who rank what’s showing today.

    Though I felt that the “Squid and the Whale” was much better.
