Yes or No

When  you have a friend

a good friend

a long time  friend

(how can you write about

anything else but politics

a friend wrote me yesterday,

i have to. i can.)

(take your yemenite students

to lunch said another.

that’s what i will do.

go to lunch)

when you have a good friend

self destructing do you

watch the way friends

watch each other do you

hold his hand

say yes or no?

 

 

 

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.
