The Day After Thanksgiving (COVID)


We gave thanks that we could walk to the park even have a drink

squash blossoms appetizer we gave thanks that there will be

a vaccine and a new president and people in the cabinet who

know what they’re doing and that Yayoi Kasuma was the first

woman to make a Thanksgiving Day balloon as part of her 90th

birthday and  we are living through this crazy pandemic with thousands of things

to watch at home Good Lord Bird last night and plenty of food

and bottles of wine and we know we are lucky and we give thanks for that too.

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.
