Lizzy and Moonlight, a poem is not a bio, a poem is fiction, even if it could be a self portrait in some way.
What struck me at the time was the similitude of their art in their love for freedom, the sufferings they have like a fate, and also in self portraits (paintings for the woman, poems, for the man (it was before Leonard Cohen posted some drawings of himself here)) in which they pictured themselves as ugly people, I think, because of this suffering that they wanted to express.
