looking back

Looking Back

I heard
back from
Leonard Cohen.
He wants me
to join
his tour.

 

Unlike the
other members of
the troupe
who wear
snappy little hats,
I’m to wear
a dunce cap.

 

There’ll be a
gold leash
around my neck &
when Leonard
yanks it
I blurt out
a Shard.

 

No talk of
my playing
harmonica,
but if things
work out well
there’s an
off chance
of our
cutting a
record together:

 

Leonard & John,
Looking Back
Thru the
Ages.

 

My friends
tell me
this is
the chance of
a lifetime,
but I’m a
little uneasy
about the
dunce cap &
leash.
