What Will Happen Today, or Framing (COVID)

Yesterday Matthew hand delivered a beautiful print

we want to change our walls always

looking at these walls now  today a man named Tony Kou

made movies in China, good movies,  influenced

most by great Iranian filmmakers  now Tony Kou

we met at the flea market years ago he’ll drive by

in his truck with frame samples  lives in Queens

drive by framing now of course I could go to a regular frame store

but I like Tony Kou and he’s been hard hit by COVID no flea

market income Tony will meet me in the lobby at 10:30 and I’ll

give him Matthew’s large print of Coney Island and  cookies

and in a week he will come back and we’ll hang it on the wall.

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.
