Sunday Corona Virus


I am easily distracted could never be

a research scientist or someone who sits

in the exact same chair

no routines except one or two and now

take Levothyroxine each morning

now home on my couch big enough

to often change my spot

now  on Sunday instead of  of walking downstairs  to discover

what’s in the flea market never been a day where there wasn’t something

collected umbrella handles so many years

and now in a way I haven’t been maybe ever, now I am right here.

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. may you stay strong and healthy, dear esther, writing your real poems, in your couch or elsewhere.


  2. Yes. I hear you. No flea markets for the foreseeable future. At least not in my future. Probably a good thing since I’ve got too many collections of things and need to re-distribute them. Stay safe and healthy. Carol
