I've been listening to Leonard the past couple days and he reminds me why I used to write poetry. I have always been aware of him, but it wasn't until I began listening that I realized how pervasive his influence was and still is. He makes me wonder if I could ever write poetry that good, if I could ever write poetry that bad. Still the man is able to touch with his words and I suppose that is all anyone can do at best. If you can touch with words, then you have succeeded at this thing called writing.
