Thanksgiving (COVID)

I’ve always liked Thanksgiving even when

Noah’s kindergarten teacher sent us a note

about Native Americans suggesting we

change the holiday not Pilgrims I liked

just people eating together I have

always been thankful for people

eating together and on Thanksgiving that’s what we did

especially in the country   room for infinite

people enough dishes  because of all those flea markets

although it is still Thanksgiving and I am

glad to be here today without Covid without

That President soon still I am in this apartment  no one can come inside

we will eat a good meal as always read a poem or two

give thanks that this will not last forever that something resembling

democracy will happen in January we will go for a walk

in the park still beautiful cold does not make the park less beautiful

we are grateful and lucky and know for us all there will be next year.

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.
