What We Say

I’m not sure why
but I am Facebook Friends
with (incredible actor)
Malachy McCourt. We met
a few times here and there
now we inhabit that nebulous world
of Facebook Friendship.
A few weeks ago his brother
died. Please no cliches
he wrote all of us
Facebook Friends. I hate cliches
but not as much as my
brother would have hated them.
No Rest in Peaces
especially. He doesn’t want to
Rest in Peace. He wasn’t a rester.
I printed out his post
(the only one I ever have)
to save in my Forever Pile
to think about when SOMETHING HAPPENS
and when I want to Say Something
because that’s what we
all do. We Say Something.

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.
