High in the Tower of Song

The Late Estrellita loved Leonard Cohen who was up there with the new Nobelist in her personal tower of song. Take this lyric as her grave tribute to one of her soul brothers.

I’m Smoking for Two

sweating on a cot
where there is no light
gonna sleep like a
poet tonight

empty head no
relief in sight
gonna sleep like
e a poe tonight

nightmares that’d give
death a fright
gonna sleep with the angels of
lyric tonight

sometimes trouble
can’t be put right
but I’m glad I can worry enough
to sleep like a poet tonight

no one lives with me
to talk I write
I take myself dancing, smoke a few bones
and we both sleep like poets tonight
