Couldn't the great God be our neighbour as well?
I'm pretty sure that for Leonard Cohen He is.
If I were a believer He surely would be for me (because even without believing He sometimes is).

"And are we still leaning
Across the old table"

With a marble tabletop.
On which the Word is written, which I can't read.
And on which my little ego is running barefoot, as a naughty boy who never did his homework.
With his pockets which he doesn't have, since he is naked full of marbles.
(Or is it marvels?) :D

Thanks a lot, LY24, for your most interesting questions and this most interesting discussion.

And best wishes for you, too.
Therefore know that you must become one with the bow, and with the arrow, and with the target
to say nothing of the horse.

... for a while
... for a little while...
