Roy Orbison’s Rose Colored Glasses are in Nashville

Pedro took a six week
course in PDR painless dent removal
he removes car dents for a living
has a Puerto Rican Soul food truck with his fiancé
moved to Nashville from D.C.
he hopes for hail because then
there are more dents

at the country western museum for everyone
involved in making a hit
woman standing next to me watching the Grammy movie
talked about Alicia Keyes she’s a Pakistani back surgeon
from Queens traveling on her own
for country music needed a break
from broken backs

(how music is made
and how we hear in Nashville)

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.
