In class last night we

sat together writing secrets trying hard

to write them down.  I sometimes

think my writing’s about avoiding secrets I almost know.

But if we give ourselves the chance

for words and words, maybe then we can say

what we’ve wanted for so long.  Maybe then.


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.
