Visiting Gerald Mitchell Chiropractor Et Al

Without the usual overworked assistant

no distant buzz part of doctor’s offices friendly unfriendliness

Gerald Mitchell a different species he’s  a basement warren

of offices way west on 57th he looks a little like Crocodile Dundee but from

Jersey City the Irish neighborhood obsessed with the body for

45 years completely obsessed with how it works in a funny way he knows

the answer knows how systems link does not separate in the usual ways

whole body the entire thing  his specialty his subject matter  when he makes small talk

he is not good at small talk but when he does it’s about a system or two

and when you leave his office after an hour he is inexpensive does not sell you

supplements when you leave his office you actually want to return.




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.
