My Favorite Response to Poinsettias and Christmas Trees

Many people wrote to me
about the Poinsettia and Christmas
tree poem but my favorite
response in my permanent
file I have a permanent file
with many requests including one
from a Ghanian female body
builder who wrote two days
ago saying You and I
look like we should be
Good Friends. I wondered
what she was looking at.
Not my body.
My favorite email yesterday
from my poet friend Cheryl
she said I Have To Write To You
about this poem BUT
my phone is out of batteries.
Mine too.

IRRELEVANT POSTSCRIPT: Last day of Chanukah. Our last postcard poems on on

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.
