I heard of a man

I heard of a man who says words so beautifully
that if he only speaks their name
women give themselves to him.
If I am dumb beside your body
while silence blossoms like tumors on our lips,
it is because I hear
a man climb the stairs
and clear his throat
outside our door.

Leonard Cohen

Konsere gidememiş olsam da Cohen'i, Tori Amos'ın 'Silent All These Years' parçasının başında seslendirdiği şiirle selamlamak isterim.
