“…in notice of the death of…”

One of the greatest songwriters of all time has passed away…

Mr. Leonard Cohen

His influence on me and the entire music community is immeasurable…

This piece is in his honor…

there’s a rumble that smells of survival
in a soul that knows only to breathe
there’s a bittersweet orange aroma
that discernment within can conceive

there’s a newspaper stand on the corner
though so many no longer can read
there are dead that still wait to be counted
there are living that still cannot breathe

there’s a cry in the heart of a prophet
there’s a prayer in the eyes of unrest
there are nine hundred thoughts in a minute
when the spirit is getting undressed

there’s a stone that was rolled in the distance
there’s a cry where a dove tried to soar
there are blankets that fold out their riches
in the warmth of the night for the poor

there’s a writer with songs still composing
who’s breath has been taken to grieve
in notice of the death of leonard cohen
and the living that still cannot breathe
