Old Pictures

of what life looks like

my friend Sue laughing on a bench with Bruce

in Geneva New York Bruce trying not to laugh

Imperial Baths in Sharon Springs we went into the water

said we’d go back ten Jews in a canoe

in the Peruvian jungle discussing Larry David

big blue hat made of felt sold by an old woman

in a village happy someone finally bought her hat

she laughed when I put it on my head

Noah with his get me out of here look

at a wedding in England

large wheels of cheese in Parma

many tables of food and people

some I don’t remember my hair was different

shades of red once it was eggplant

Peter on beaches in  many places

Connie and David  at a Central Park fountain

explaining something

every car trip we’d photograph beauty shops with good names

Curl Up and Dye one of the best

this week another road trip what will

the pictures be?








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.
