Peter’s Birthday is Today (COVID)

Ten ten Peter’s birthday we often

go on a trip Not This Year Not Last Year Either

bought tickets to Ecuador

people’s revolt in Quito the day before

turned in our tickets thinking we would

go this year now COVID no travel

but today gorgeous day where Biden ahead

more points even our anxious friends believe

He Will Probably Win we will go to the park

eat in our favorite restaurant six feet

apart from Other People continue to celebrate

Peter and birthdays and know there will be an After This.

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.


  1. Honored to share my birthday with Peter. Each year I forget and enjoy your poetic reminder. Happy Birthday Peter!
