“swore to be an angel . . . forgot that my feet are still in the mud.”
A swan, a lion, a rose, an angel, an eagle– there’s a lot going on in our new featured performance by A. J. Kaufmann. A. J., “a modern Polish poet, lyricist, composer, and musician,” tells us this poem, “Raincoat,” is about “ideas of freedom, Leonard Cohen, and jazz.”
It’s about that and a lot more. Catch the lyrics– they’re terrific.
