Enjoy Michael Shannon Reading Leonard Cohen’s Anti-Kanye Poem ‘Kanye West Is Not Picasso’

Written by Jackson Langford on October 13, 2018

We’re truly living in the worst timeline, but at least Michael Shannon (I guess) is here to make everything slightly better. Slightly.

ICYMI, a collection of poems written by Leonard Cohen, titled ‘The Flame’, have been posthumously released recently, and one poem, written in 2015, in particular has been making some headlines: ‘Kanye West Is Not Picasso.’

And yeah, Cohen had some feelings.

“I am the Kanye West of Kanye West/ The Kanye West/ Of the great bogus shift of bullshit culture/ From one boutique to another.” Wowee.

Oddly prophetic given all the stuff Kanye has been getting up to lately, including his batsh*t visit to the White House.

Well, now an audiobook of the collection of poems is being released, and Oscar-nominated actor Michael Shannon has been delegated the task of reading ‘Kanye West Is Not Picasso.’ And if you listen to one thing today, make sure it’s this.
