Outside Peggy’s Cove, NS (Don’t Miss This)

Last night at dinner (we did not listen to CNN all day

knew Bannon resigned that’s all)

pork shoulder blue cheese pizza

familiar couple walked in   black woman long

grey braids glasses a yellow skirt

tall white husband in navy blue after dinner

I walked over she said I don’t know you but I know

your husband the musician.  She invited us to their cabin

played a song they wrote together  she plays the fiddle

maybe a Cape Breton song what love looks like

what life can look like even now.



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.
