69-14 Woodside Avenue   Queens


One of the ideas i’ve had

for a while:  guidebook in verse called

Don’t Miss This or

maybe, something more poetic.

Last night we began Elizabeth’s food group

launched sounds like a big boat

Filipino restaurant Noah suggested

We got to Woodside on the 7 train

chicken places Mexican bar marguerita

with two parasols  Elizabeth  ordered

in advance when people write about food

they often say succulent

food was beautiful plentiful succulent

hoping for a small party in a place

we wanted to be  eat  talk  recover

a little from  difficult months  know

we could always have a good meal better

than good meal together




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. Hmm… Don’t understand the last couple of lines here. “know / we could always have a good meal better / than good meal together…”
