Meditation on Four Jewish Larrys

Last night I dreamt about four Jewish Larrys

Larry R from Hebrew School rides a bike and married Catherine

Larry B  makes art writes plays guitar moved to the country years ago with Susan

Larry G my union president lives with a Susan too

Larry M who said in a meeting a few years ago (I don’t know if he’s married but I hope not)

Esther what makes you think you know ANYTHING about typeface

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. Esther Cohen,
    I enjoy and appreciate all your poems. I like that they are of the moment, and that that moment is fed by current happenings as well as happenings from the past. Better than breakfast, your words nurture the soul; however and whatever they feed us, they don’t stop with that first gift, they say, let’s get up and get going. Life awaits, and maybe needs us, as we need it, for sure.
    Thank you!
    Nancy Rose

  2. What a clever poem!

    Larry Barry
    Harry Gary

    I know how my next poem will grow.

    With Silvermans
    And Golden men

    And women who know how to glow.
