For Leonard Cohen Poem by D M Jackson

Oh we built you a pedestal Leonard Cohen
and it was not nearly tall enough
so we covered it with our tears
and rose petals of love

and we lost
the luster of youth
and ended up here

wondering what it was all about

pinpoint called life
love of life
love of love

Thank you for the ladies, Leonard.
They were angels singing
and you pointed them out

“Hear the angels”

and we love you for it.
