Leonard Cohen My Friend

By Michael Lee Johnson

Leonard Cohen My Friend

Death is a bitch and a whore
comes with hat on or off,
Jewish, Christian or lover years ago called Nancy.
Death is a passport, a left behind baggage note.
My leverage sinks, I see you pass human.
These my fears, your fright, being broke, old-royalties stole Suzanne.
Now branches, extended limbs, point outward nowhere --
doors Montreal collapse tomb, dance with me,
end perfume love, a few dead flowers.
