“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.” – Leonard Cohen

Steer Your Way

Leonard Cohen

 

Steer your way through the ruins of the Altar and the Mall

Steer your way through the fables of Creation and the Fall

Steer your way past the Palaces that rise above the rot

Year by year

Month by month

Day by day

Thought by thought

Read rest of poem at The New Yorker

R.I.P. Leonard Cohen
