Today I half wanted to go to the gym

but I didn’t.  Maybe because

I don’t  like the gym except for

people  talking to one another not exercising

when the gym opened

there was a big suggestion box in the ladies

locker room and I went often

to hear what they were suggesting

I sat in the locker room

many adjectives for better towels

not just fluffy one woman said

she wanted the towels both durable and light

but after they removed the suggestion box

too many suggestions from members

I stopped going to the gym although I did leave a note

downstairs: Bring Back the Suggestion Box.

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.
