What Strangers Say (Quebec City)

We like Quebec

ate many almond croissants  back

again to  Belley Taverne regulars now

Russell asked

if we’d found a place for dinner

St. Amour one of the best in Canada

raised in Scotland five years ago Russell moved

to Quebec  restoration architect

17 miserable married years

two daughters Christina Arabella

Brooklyn Paris and now said Russell  he knew

we’d want to know and now

met a woman at Belley Bar from South Korea

on his way there soon

as you say in your country said Russell

we’re an item



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.
