Sharks & Dolphins

Leonard Cohen
is a
dolphin.


I’m a
shark.


We swim
the same
ocean.


Leonard jumps
thru hoops
& always
seems
to be
smiling.


People stroke
his nose
& feed
him small
fish.


I have
to stay
in constant
motion or
I die.


Occasionally
we cross
paths far
out at
sea.


Leonard streaks
along just
under the
surface.


I glide
further down
with the
grace of
a carnivore.


When the
moon is
full we
swim side
by side,
sometimes
as far
as Tahiti.
