Polling (COVID)

Peter read a piece this morning that explained

why polls  didn’t work in the last two

elections only one in 100 people agree to answer polls

I answer and try to get the pollster to tell

me a little something too.  Last week someone called

from an NYU Poll on Aging and she asked

questions about odd subjects like efficiency (I am

not efficient) and  I asked if I was entitled

to ask her a question too and she said sure and I said

What is the Question You’d Like to be Asked

What’s the first song I’ll sing when I finally get on stage to do my one woman

show if that day ever comes.   Aretha Franklin’s RESPECT, she said.

And we both said goodbye.

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. Dearest Esther, you bring so much joy to my life. I look forward to your poems for so many reasons, one of which is they inspire me to be better with everyone I am privileged to interact with.
