“The Influence (Leonard Cohen consoles Nick Cave)” by Ben Smith
"There there, Nick - just because you’re off the heroin doesn’t mean the religious imagery won’t keep on flowing."
"…I really really loved it when you touched her perfect body with your mind. You’re so dreamy, Leonard. I wish I could do that, but I keep on obsessing about banging rocks into women’s heads and doing a whole manner of violent gothic things to them and thinking of the unspeakably exquisite poetry of their eyeless bosomy corpses lying beneath the muddy water like funereal whore-offerings to broken gods."
"Think of the holy dove. She will guide you."
"Dark crows. Darkly encircling tombs. Not holy doves."
"You know, I have some hallucinogens in the freezer. It’s never too late."
"I could go with some smack, actually. I’ve become so dull since I went off the gear. Or some crack, maybe, since I have a bit more than a fiddy left over from that book I wrote with that chick’s crotch on the cover."
"Crack? Pfft - there’s crack in everything, Nick. It’s how the antidepressants get in.”
This is kind of awesome (Smith’s lovely rendering, not my obnoxious dialogue), but is it just me, or has Nick’s upturned, somewhat Tubbsian nose been straightened out a bit? Or is just the contrast against Lennie’s yiddishe schnoz?
