What Today’s Poem Will Be About

Not Matt Lauer or any royal’s bride or groom

nothing related to holidays

(a writer asked  yesterday

when Chanukah is  whether

I’ll write Chanukah poems.

Dec 12 and maybe) or the tax bill

what’s in the chicken

they sell at Walmart  why it’s so warm

what the function is

of my poems.

 

 

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.
