Tom Waits on Leonard's songs

'We also touched upon Leonard Cohen, who once said, “If I knew where the good songs came from I’d go there more often.” (“For the rest of us,” [Tom] Waits said, “it appears, not only did he go there often, he got a room in the tower, and he paid in advance for a whole month.”)'

Tom Waits, I like his husky voice in general and clever words here in particular.

Why. In term of poetry maybe it is just to. Not going anywhere. And there you are ?
