Spike Lee and What We Should All Do Now

Last night in the rain

we went to see Blackklansman small

rich white town in upstate New York.

Monday and the theater was completely full

Denzel Washington’s son of course he is

handsome and David

Duke and the Klan and White Supremacy

Black Power there were even Jews in this movie

Adam Driver a pretty perfect Jew even though

he didn’t know too much about it

we left after one of those

Good Movie Experiences discussing what

a good movie is and what Spike says and what

we should all do 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. Dear Esther, your poems are a highlight of my mornings.
    I’m happy BkK resonated with you. It was difficult yet rewarding to work on it, so it’s especially good to see its effect register in this apathetic movie-going climate. As you say, Good Movies still matter.

    Thank you for your beautiful poetry.
