THE FLAME

Leonard Cohen. THE FLAME: Poems & Selections from Notebooks. M&S, 2018.

A great way to end the year and the decade. While listening to another gift: Thanks for the Dance. 

He concludes with "thank you" to the troubled young man who taught him the chords. 

He ends with "a mandate from God / to enter the dark". 

I shall remember his "no longer inclined / to speak the truth // speak truth to power? / rather / speak truth / to the powerless."

And his "I Pray for Courage" p. 87.
