Campbell McGrath - Hemingway Dines on Boiled Shrimp and Beer

I'm the original two-hearted brawler.
I gnaw the scrawny heads from prawns,
pummel those mute, translucent crustaceans,
wingless hummingbirds, salt-water spawned.
As the Catalonians do, I eat the eyes at once.
My brawny palms flatten their mainstays.
I pop the shells with my thumbs, then crunch.

 

Just watch me as I swagger and sprawl,
spice-mad and sated, then dabble in lager
before I go strolling for stronger waters
down to Sloppy Joe's.My stride as I stagger
shivers the islands, my fingers troll a thousand keys.
My appetite shakes the rock of the nation.
The force of my fiction makes the mighty Gulf Stream.

Leonard Cohen - Darkness

Leonard Cohen - Darkness by leonardcohen

 

I caught the darkness
It was drinking from your cup
I caught the darkness
from your little cup
I said, Is this contagious?
You said, Just drink it up.

I've got no future
I know my days are few
Ah, the present's not that pleasant
just a lot of things to do
I thought the past would last me
but the darkness got that too

 

I should have seen it coming
It was right behind your eyes
You were young and it was summer
I just had to take a dive
Winning you was easy,
but darkness was the prize

 

I don't smoke no cigarettes
I don't use the alcohol
I ain't had much lovin' yet
but that's always been your call.
Hey, I don't miss it baby

I got no taste for anything at all

 

I used to love the rainbow
and I used to love the view
I loved the early morning
and I pretended it was new
But I caught the darkness, baby,
And I got it worse than you

 

I caught the darkness,
it was drinking from your cup
I caught the darkness
from your little cup
I said, Is this contagious?
You said, Just drink it up.
