Friday Poem: Song Chain

you could do anythingYears ago, in Montreal,
A lonesome Leonard Cohen
Walked up and down in a room,
Singing Hank  Williams.

After twenty or thirty years,
Alone in an apartment in Olympia,
Kurt Cobain, aged twenty,
Sang Leonard Cohen songs
All night.

Another twenty or thirty years have passed,
And somewhere in the world
Someone sits in a bedroom
Alone with a guitar,
Singing the songs
of Kurt Cobain.

And in another generation,
Perhaps, somewhere another someone
Will sit, or walk, alone in a room
And sing that someone’s songs.

Pear St house

The top picture is a tiny (7 by 10 cm) pen & water colour I did last week, and am really happy with. I won’t show you the failures! The bottom pic is of the house in Olympia in which Kurt Cobain lived, and at some point, sang Leonard Cohen songs to himself.
Looking through the photos from our trip, I felt so homesick(?), I just want to go back NOW…!
