Meet Me at a Sample Sale

we could meet

at my favorite sample sale

at 350 Seventh Avenue

between 29 and 30

I love sample sales for their

unpredictability for their

purple velvet gloves and spherical hats

five dollar bins

sometimes two dollar bins

once years ago I bought a black and white dress

real dominoes sewn as buttons

You Can Have That said the man who

made it he was from Montenegro

no one else even picked it up

I wore his domino dress

for years.


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.
