Ode to A

A key loose

for many years so

I’ve been typing gently

last finger on my left hand

until yesterday when a genius

at the genius bar repositioned the a

where it belongs

maybe the most used letter in the English

alphabet and maybe not

but today I can write an Ode to A

if I wanted, without worrying that the a

would fall off and then I’d have to write

an Ode to B.

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.
