IF YOU KNEW – A POEM BY LEONARD COHEN (In loving memory)

Uno stupido che cammina va più lontano di dieci intellettuali seduti (Jacques Séguéla)

leonard_cohen_1988_01

If you knew how much we loved you

you’d cover up

you wouldn’t fuck around

with the passion

that killed three hundred thousand people

at Hiroshima

or scooped up rocks from the moon

and crushed them into dust

looking for you

looking for your lost encouragement

From “Book of longing” by Leonard Cohen, Penguin Books, 2006

  1. Immenso Leonard Cohen. Mi manca, mi mancherà sempre e sempre troppo.
