I love the song

in the darkness
you struggle
to find that crack
where the light
can get in

I love the song
Leonard
a true anthem
to hope
& happiness

but sometimes
that tiny crack
is buried so
deep beneath
all the pain
that no light
manages to escape

...but I do
love the song
Leonard

Nightmare of Moloch (for Allen)

Here it comes
Another voice
Amongst the voices
That echo
In our minds
With
Mental traps
That blast
Bullets
Tipped with fear
Deep into our
Sacred spaces
While
All us Poets
Howl like
Ginsberg
Warning that
The best souls
Are being
Destroyed
By madness
