One Advantage of the Cold (COVID)


average wait time Sunday mornings can be an hour

bread was not sold out today

watermelon radishes chioggia beets

pickles Martin’s pretzels honey crisps

we bought our once happily free roaming chicken

yesterday at Lincoln Center farmer’s market after

the vaccine.  And about the vaccine  (dose one Pfizer)

Bellevue Hospital oldest public hospital in the country

impressive volunteers my shot a Georgia

nurse who’d volunteered  for Stacey Abrams

Peter’s from a female Asian doctor

so many people volunteering this is the country

we know has been there all along.

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.
