Saturday April 18

This could easily be  Wednesday.

Wearing a black and white caftan,  I am not

going to work not meeting anyone

for breakfast lunch or dinner.

Listen to news more than seems possible

listen for the words vaccines and tests and elections

talk about food deliveries as though they were

an interesting subject call one another for Netflix

advice, for series that are funny, we go to three stores

all out of yeast so we order yeast from Ebay imagine that

do yoga  lift chickpea cans for weights and think

over and over and over again about other people

and what matters most right now.



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. Esther, Do you know whose delightful right now besides you? Mark Russ Federman’s, Russ & Daughters. Oh take me to the Lower East Side!
