What You Do Every Day

My upstairs neighbor a beautiful

Brazilian whose job has the word Global

in her title asked yesterday What I Do.

Never an easy question for me to answer

( I do and I don’t and that’s not what anyone

wants to hear)  I told her I write a poem

a day, more or less.

Is that the same as going

to the gym? she asked.

Maybe, I said and we both smiled.

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.


  1. I’m so glad to be back on your list after having been accidentally deleted. This poem is delightful, Esther! Keep ’em comin’
