Medical Marijuana Store (Covid)

We went  to pick up  sleep possibilities

from a women owned medical marijuana business

Etain Health Dispensary on route 28 in Kingston New York.

The woman at the desk looked familiar.  She teaches gender

studies at SUNY New Paltz and she told me

her  name Peri Rainbow my brother is famous she said.

Is he my pandemic hero Randy Rainbow

I asked and she said YES

but when I told this story to friends

they said Who is Randy Rainbow and the story became

different from what I’d intended.


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. Wow! We love Randy Rainbow! Very cool that you met his sister, and a women run business., too. You have such an exciting life out in the country!

  2. I love Randy Rainbow!!!! Hilarious satire song and dance mostly digging at Trump foibles. Has a youtube channel.

  3. A Poem Inspired by Esther Cohen, entitled Marriage

    My husband and i had white nectarines for dessert at lunch today, and i said,

    “I find something extremely nostalgic about the flavor immediately under the skin,”

    and he answered,

    “I can understand that.”
