Tell Me Who You Are

Woman at Hannafords I am more
than the vegetables I buy she said
Frankie who fixed our roof
said I’m the youngest
of eight brothers not even
one sister Chris last night
we sat together at dinner
she explained my son’s
wife weighs many pounds
and they are truly happy.
You never know she said
what you’re seeing
until someone tells you.

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.
