Pain and Suffering

She recorded
the silence

between us—
played it

back—made
me listen.

Andrea Cohen’s poems have appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic Monthly, Poetry, AGNI online, The Threepenny Review, and elsewhere. Four Way Books will publish her fifth collection, Unfathoming, in early 2017. Other recent books include Furs Not Mine and Kentucky Derby. She directs the Blacksmith House Poetry Series in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and the Writers House at Merrimack College. (updated 12/2016)
