book of longing by leonard cohen

“the jaw that will not
is fastened perfectly
to the writer’s skull.”

The Book of Longing by Leonard Cohen is a dream to read. I was able to relate to so many poems, and perhaps because Cohen is a true musician, each poem read like a song that I didn’t want to end.

A quick read that’s easy to pick up and put down, however I doubt you will want to. I look forward to opening it again and again and again.
