You'd Sing Too
You'd sing too
if you found yourself
in a place like this
You wouldn't worry about
whether you were as good
as Ray Charles or Edith Piaf
not for yourself
but to make a self
out of the old food
rotting in the astral bowel
and the loveless thud
of your own breathing
You'd become a singer
faster than it takes
to hate a rival's charm
and you'd sing, darling
you'd sing too
Leonard Cohen, Book of Longing
Leonard's a genius. I nearly made it through half of this book the other night in about an hour. I can't wait to read it again.
Five Favorite Songs of the Day
Desolation Row-Bob Dylan, Clarkston, MI
My first show, my favorite song. Good stuff.
yes I recieved your letter yesterday
about the time the doorknob broke
when you asked me how I was doing
was that some kind of joke?
all these people that you mentioned
I know them, they're quite lame
I had to rearrange their faces
and give them all another name
right now I can't read too good
don't send me no more letters, no!
not unless you mail them from
