Leonard Cohen

To Tinkie

You walked me to school you slept under my bed you watched me masturbating with interested eyes you protected me from my enemy loneliness even in your old age you greeted me every time I saw you you left the house and died in the snow Under the neighbour's porch and you were lost until the late summer when I was out of town and they cleared away your body I didn't believe them and even today I stop every scottie to claim you back
