Just another poem (for Mr Leonard Cohen)

between
the lines of
a poem
a little truth
is squeezed

a word
or two
that may or
may not
unshackle
the stars
&
create a minor
disturbance
in the heavens

between
the lines of
a poem
you may find
a hungry
child

a woman
broken by love

a man
broken by hate

between
the lines of
a poem
you’ll find
wars
racism
&
fear

between
the lines of
a poem
you’ll find
forgiveness
&
resurrection
