AFTER SOUTH AFRICA

IMG_0963-1Now we are home
three long short weeks
to be able to feel
not needing
to understand

so many ways
knowing can be
we see what we want
to see
even beauty

and here we are now
in the life that is
our life
knowing again
what love looks like

Esther Cohen's new book of poems, Breakfast with Allen Ginsberg, will be published this summer.
