Poems about Bob Dylan, Edie Sedgwick, a response poem to Seems So Long Ago, Nancy inspired by Leonard Cohen. I will be posting versions of these poems soon on here. For now please read on the wonderful Lothlorien Poetry Journal blogspot hosted by Strider Marcus Jones.

Despite what he says not everybody knows, not everybody knows like Leonard knows. Not everybody knows that the best songs are about loss, about endings; about so long ways to say goodbye closing time, and that age can be laughed about but not at, if I had a hat I would raise it to Mr. Cohen perched up there alone in his tower of song.
