saw Leonard Cohen last night
at Radio City in New York
an amazing show
an unbelievable show
like the previous three times I've seen him
through the years
three plus hours at full vigor
but this show was deeper...more resonant...
the musicianship beyond superb...
each player a virtuoso
and his back-up girls
what angels should look and sound like
without driving the hearer deaf and blind...
how can a 78-year-old man
have so much energy
kneel on the carpet of the stage
and spring up like a man less than half his age...
and spry as he was who knows when the last tour will be?
God and women have been good to Leonard
and all I could do was follow as I've always done
eyes on the heavens and my neck in my hand
and my heart down some wistful healing chute...
Bravo Leonard...the fellowship of last night
is permanent in the soul...and another incentive
to take heart...
