One of the frequent topics of discussion between Leonard & me was religion/spirituality.

I contended that spirituality existed outside the realm of god & religion, and was a much more personal thing.  I expressed the idea that a belief in god actually stunted a person's spirituality by trying to define it in institutional terms.  Leonard felt that spirituality was essentially tied into faith in a higher power.

Heavy shit.

I don't remember ever seeing this poem published in a journal or one of his collections, but it was totally cool having him write a piece for me, even tho I think he metaphysically slaps me around in it.
