Number Traditions

In Connecticut we lived at 43

43 Holbrook Street

43 Hillside Avenue

when I moved to New York

many many years ago

I tried for a while to find

a 43:  apartment number

street address even looked

on 43rd Street Hell’s Kitchen to continue

this peculiar family tradition

but there were no good

43 apartments I broadened

the numbers by the time I got

to 66 (buildings apartments street

addresses) voila and so for many years

66 is now our tradition


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.
