"You climbed the halls of fame"

Post by Joe Way » Tue Mar 11, 2008 3:18 am

Dear Leonard,

Love still calls you by your name.

You thought that it could never happen
to all the people that you became,
your body lost in legend, the beast so very tame.
But here, right here,
between the birthmark and the stain,
between the ocean and your open vein,
between the snowman and the rain,
once again, once again,
love calls you by your name.
The women in your scrapbook
whom you still praise and blame,
you say they chained you to your fingernails
and you climb the halls of fame.
Oh but here, right here,
between the peanuts and the cage,
between the darkness and the stage,
between the hour and the age,
once again, once again,
love calls you by your name.

Love,

Joe

Perfect and beautiful, Joe.

I'd like to add my name, if I may...


Love,
