to go to the Brooklyn Public Library

free university taught by immigrants imagine that

teach at the nail salon Polly writing about how she became

born again sign up for gyrotonics always intended

to sign up for gyrotonics never did I probably never will

have a Toned Core not even sure what toned core means

maybe muscles in the middle read the book about sleep

walk through the park to the library to just sit at the desk

on the 7th floor in the stacks the perfect desk just sitting

is enough I don’t worry about my sentences when I am sitting there

volunteer to help the Queens DA a Big Election go look at the work

of amazing Lubeyna Hamid on the Highline  sign up

and sign up and sign up and then, maybe write a poem.


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.
