Apparently April is Poetry Month

I heard this on NPR's Fresh Air a few days ago, and it caught my ear (and spirit):





Thousand Kisses Deep (Excerpt)

You came to me this morning
And you handled me like meat
You'd have to be a man to know
How good that feels, how sweet
My mirror twin, my next of kin
I'd know you in my sleep
And who but you would take me in
A thousand kisses deep

I loved you when you opened
Like a lily to the heat
See, I'm just another snowman
Standing in the rain and sleet
Who loved you with his frozen love
His second-hand physique
With all he is, and all he was
A thousand kisses deep

I know you had to lie to me
I know you had to cheat
To pose all hot and high
Behind the veils of sheer deceit
Our perfect porn aristocrat
So elegant and cheap
I'm old, but I'm still into that
A thousand kisses deep

--Leonard Cohen
