Leonard Cohen

I am an almost non-blogger. I’m not sure it gets us anywhere. I’m not a photographer. Here’s this, though. It doesn’t have more weight because I only rarely put a blog out there.

I read this last night.

“…
So I must say it quickly:
Whoever is in your life,
those who harm you,
those who help you;
those whom you know
and those whom you do not know –
let them off the hook,
help them off the hook.
Recognize the hook.
You are listening to Radio Resistance.”

They are the last lines of S.O.S. 1995 by Leonard Cohen. You can find the whole poem in Book of Longing.

I took photographs of the hooks in my home. I thought maybe doing that would be to think usefully about what Leonard Cohen wrote there. I’d say that mostly I got caught up in the thrill of the chase in my hunt for hooks.

we dry our things on clotheshangers over the doors. They’ve made grooves in the doors and chipped the paint on the door frames

he used to have a loop of red thread in his head when he was a pram ted – there’s a tiny red mark still. His nose smells good.
