Susan Cohen (Day 11 NaMoPo)

Susan Cohen said when

she met  Barry at a party

she told him she lived on Barrow Street

Barry found a different Susan Cohen on Barrow Street

and invited her to dinner.  They did not

have a good time, Then Barry

found the right Susan Cohen this took some work

and when they went out to dinner they

decided to see one another again and now

they’ve been married for years.

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. My husband died in front of me
    Or I thought he did.
    I called 911
    “Is he breathing ?”
    I can’t tell.
    I put down the phone,
    I throw cold water on him,
    By the third glass, he opens his eyes
    He says, “don’t do that”.
    I pick up the phone…
    “He’s breathing.”
