Lisa Tells Me What to Watch (COVID)

She sees everything and texts me

her suggestions and I who am not very

media savvy use a pen to write them down.

Watch Wendy’s Shabbat

a short on POV she said last night.  This morning I did.

Filmmaker’s grandmother lives in Sunset City Florida

senior community they all have dogs

drive golf carts to get around. Many Jews there who aren’t

religious but they like tradition.  One woman has

the idea to celebrate the Sabbath in the local Wendy’s

and Wendy’s likes the idea. So do they.

A whole meal is $4.00 for a burger or chicken nuggets

and every single Friday a big group of them go to Wendy’s.

The rabbi lives in Sunset City too he is 97 says he might be

the oldest practicing rabbi in America  and Friday

night they are all together, laughing and discussing doctors

and gossip and celebrating living another week at Wendy’s.


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.
