Turning Darkness to Light (for Leonard Cohen)

entry picture

Broken, turning to the arm of the record player

resting down the crackling voice

telling you what you have just been through

and will do again, and you are not alone.


And the words seep in like a porous sponge

just wanting to be healed and protected


and you carry his armour

of a trilby hat

not so fitting suit

a smile that would fit perfectly on a child


dent the slinging arrows

and barbed words

that come your way


and trickle slowly down the rainy street

singing his words


leonard cohen
