Dream Song 16: Henrys pelt was put on sundry walls
Comment on Dream Song 16: Henrys pelt was put on sundry walls and see more John Berryman poems below.
Henry's pelt was put on sundry walls
where it did much resemble Henry and
them persons was delighted.
Especially his long & glowing tail
by all them was admired, and visitors.
They whistled: This is it!
Golden, whilst your frozen daiquiris
whir at midnight, gleams on you his fur
& silky & black.
Mission accomplished, pal.
My molten yellow & moonless bag,
drained, hangs at rest.
Collect in the cold depths barracuda.
in Sealdah Station some possessionless
children survive to die.
The Chinese communes hum.
withdrew into a corner of the gorgeous room
and one told the other a lie.
