I tell my mother
I’ve won the Nobel Prize.

Again? she says. Which
discipline this time?

It’s a little game
we play: I pretend

I’m somebody, she
pretends she isn’t dead.

—Andrea Cohen

Andrea Cohen’s most recent books are Kentucky Derby and Long Division. She directs the Blacksmith House Poetry Series in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
