Pennsylvia’s 18th District (Tonight)

Connor Lamb  a Democrat

moderate Democrat 33 years old

former Marine running against

Rick Saccone Trump before Trump

Western Pennsylvania home of my longtime boss

Reverend Paul Sherry

white blue collar workers workers Trump

visited twice Easy Win he said

neck and neck is said often Republicans

spending money Democrats salivating

(I have never used the word salivating in a poem)

nervous watchers we all look for signs

canary in a coal mine

more than the 18th district of Pennsylvania

we who know there is hope, there is always hope

we watch and watch, and hope.




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.
