Yom Kippur

Tonight
wherever we
are circumstances
don’t matter
what we do
or don’t believe
tonight
if we are in
our living room
if we are in
a synagogue
even if we
are eating
Chinese food
pretending
otherwise we know
we have to know
tonight no matter
who we are
we ask forgiveness
not from
someone else
but from ourselves

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.
