No Middleman

Leonard Cohen 1934 (Westmount) – 2016 (Los Angeles, California)

I never tried to see your face,
Nor did I want to know
The details of some lower place
Where I would have to go.

But love is strong as gravity,
And everyone must fall.
At first it’s from the apple tree,
And then the Western Wall.
