Seven More Days (COVID)

We read Amy Siskind Many Times a Day

Brilliant Keeper of Lists:

8.15 million Texans voted 92 percent

of the 2016 total   Biden up four points in Iowa

recite Amy Siskind to one another

our cheerleader our conscience

call strangers tell them why they have to vote

strangers say yes

wait in long lines to vote ourselves

don’t sleep much  worried one more week

listen to music meditate meditate   Don’t Think

About the Elephant  all we think about

is the Elephant watch what we can Korean soap opera yesterday

try not to be overly optimistic and yet

we know this country as imperfect

as every single place on earth we know

next week we’ll have a chance a Real Big Chance, again.

 

 

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.
