The Day After the 4th of July (COVID)

We pretend  life is normal

lucky enough to be in the country

as beautiful as beautiful

with people we love full summer meals first corn

bright green bubble  another world

listen to Frederick Douglass

wear masks send bailout money

we wear masks at CVS and are grateful, even now

to sit in this sun.

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.
