Olive and Betty County Route 20

At this morning’s yoga class

“your Om away from Om”

in Leeds New York the teacher sent us

to a new latte  shop on Main Street

handsome men from Cobble Hill

baby named Olive they are next door

to Betty’s Breakfast All Day Betty told me once

that all the women in her family are Bettys

there they are, Olive and Betty, now side by side.



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.
