Wreck it Ralph

Well we have now watched Wreck It Ralph 2000

times Ahava wakes up yelling  Grandma Wreck It Ralph!

wildly happy at the idea of seeing this same movie again

I’ve made other suggestions but this is the story she loves

knows by heart  though she is only four  Wreck It Ralph her favorite

and I who usually wake up wondering

What Will Happen in a series of categories

Who will win the Democratic Nomination

Will Joe Biden drop out does he have memory problems

Can Bruce cure his lyme disease his eyes

Will Israel reelect Netanyahu change their policies

Can we put an end to guns

I who often wake up worried give Ahava

her bowl of honey nut cheerios sit on the couch

for the 1,000thtime though it is too early

to sit on the couch and here we are, happy,

both of us, not worrying right now, at least for the

duration one hour and 48 minutes of Wreck it Ralph.


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. Wonderful reminder of why we have grandchildren or other little ones in our lives, and it is what gives us the strength to keep on. Thanks.

  2. Brings back wonderful memories, Esther. I love those times whatever the movie. And it does, just for a while, get one away from all those other topics ou mention.

  3. Suki had a lesson on poetry today. So we obviously came to your site and read and enjoyed your wit. Hope you are well. Thank you for being our go to poet. Xoxo Kalah
