The Verses In My Head

Sometimes a stray nugget
requiring additional prospecting
a little digging and dirty hands

Sometimes popping up full grown
like mushrooms after a rainy night
or a car driven through the wall
to sit in the middle of the living room
asking, “what next?”

When it seems they are
being dictated deliberately
by a voice like Leonard Cohen,
I figure I’m on to something
and hunt immediately
for paper and pen

Happy Birthday, Mr. Cohen
