Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs

Stranger Music: Selected Poems and Songs - Leonard Cohen I love this so much I accidentally dropped it in the bath one time, and now it is all wibbly and curly. It's exactly what it says on the tin - a collection of poems and songs by Leonard Cohen. If you love Leonard Cohen, then you'll love it. It's really that simple. I find him utterly enthralling - he's profound, beautiful, bitter, melancholy and exquisite by turns, occasionally simultaneously.

From Beneath My Hands:

When you call me close
to tell me
your body is not beautiful
I want my body and my hands
to be pools
for your looking and laughing.
