We Will Write Non Prayer Prayers in Class Tonight


although I am not religious Jewish in a way that honors funny that honors politics

vagueness of what came before  so much I don’t know

who my relatives really were what they lived although I am not

a religious person in a funny way I pray and pray especially these years

we are so divided  every day something impossible happens

children taken from parents people sent back to countries where

they no longer belong someone testifies on tv then

r kelly and michael jackson  we watch them all and its cold and March

and I am behind on every sentence.  Still I pray everyday for spring

which will absolutely happen, and so will love.

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.
