Liz is 57 Now (part one)

She’s from Wisconsin.
Her father left
when she was eight
years old. He was
an alcoholic. Her mother
had four kids.
When Liz was eighteen, she married
an older guy.
Much older.
A month later, he was
arrested for robbing
a bank. She got a divorce,
became an exotic dancer,
and went to community college
where she majored in nutrition.

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.
