What We Do Now (COVID)

Nine states. Disappointed exhausted we worked

hard so many of us can’t imagine

how anyone white women anyone voted for him

The Big Big Path is long and hard and never over

we know how much there is to do

to change this impossible world.  Peter

says he’s not good at being the positive one

Biden will win, he thinks. He’s even smiling.

and Ahava had a good dream last night

she dreamt of unicorns

and I like everyone else will not give up I will

meet my friend Gary for a good Thai lunch a glass of wine

play  a wonderful piece of music

maybe Nina Simone walk into the park it’s warmer today

and tomorrow no matter what happens we will keep on.



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.
