Republican Corn (COVID)

First corn this summer and we drove

to the old Republican family farm nearby

where we buy corn every year the farmer

doesn’t have political signs

so many  customers have second homes

people who buy ten dollar pickles

ice cream with flavors called Middle East Peace

Syrian dates and figs we buy our

Republican corn yesterday the first time

this summer the stand is full happy

customers wearing masks buying local cherries

too we bring home our corn our cherries

our pickles.  The corn is delicious.

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.
