It’s a long way home down Fairfax to the Santa Monica Freeway, a sinister stretch of the Imagination. The twine of her fragrance sparks above me like an old streetcar cable. Dust of L.A. exhausted springtime in the lever of my headlights, lifting her shade from smoke to smoke among the luminous lane markers. And what is this song but a little night Muzak for those who get out too much, who talk to their divorced wives disembodied between the windshield and the following stars in voices of secret intimacy such as they never used in the everlasting regime of parting. "Commentary to Slowly I Married Her," a poem by Leonard Cohen from his book Death of a Lady’s Man.

…I don’t like your fashion business, mister. I don’t like these drugs that keep you thin. I don’t like what happened to my sister. First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin.

I’d really like to live beside you, baby. I love your body and your spirit and your clothes. But you see that line that’s moving through the station? I told you, I told you, told you that I was one of those.

And I thank you for the items that you sent me: the monkey and the plywood violin. I practised every night now I’m ready. First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin.

Remember me? I used to live for music. Remember me? I brought your groceries in. It’s Father’s Day, and everybody’s wounded. First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin.

From “First We Take Manhattan,” a song by Leonard Cohen from his album  I’m Your Man.

scenes from bird on a wire (1974)

Shot during Leonard’s 1972 tour.

The moon is outside.
I saw the great uncomplicated thing
when I went to take a leak just now.
I should have looked at it longer.
I am a poor lover of the moon.
I see it all at once and that’s it
for me and the moon.
"The Moon," a poem by Leonard Cohen from his book Book of Longing.
