What Happens (COVID)

To understand how all this changed.  Anxious

every one of us we bake banana bread

count the days 150  when this started

find our high school boyfriend worry about

Black Lives Matter  people out of work

The Big Election and  prison and children

we read novels again

and Mary Trump and go to demonstrations

make striped masks

try every day to write it down.

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.
