Mortimer Theodore and Minerva Yesterday (COVID)

In class last night Rainey a  writer in the zoom class

of Penn South Social Services,  very good writer

like everyone else in her class Rainey told us  we

are all worried about a thousand things  in this world

now  she told us yesterday that November 18

is the 92nd birthday of Mortimer Theodore and Minerva

who became Micky and Minnie Mouse and we were glad to talk

about Something Else besides Covid and Winter and Him and we

speculated on how Mortimer and Minerva became Micky and Minnie

and someone asked why the names got changed and

Rainey said she’d tell us next week.



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.
