What is Real (COVID)




meteor showers and COVID

and NETFLIX and Portland and

what it means to be sick,

what it means to be well.

Barry retired surgeon in class

told us the history of five big plagues.

They came and they went

just like this one and then we will be

on the other side .

I know we will, Barry said.


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.
