Dream Song 109: She mentioned worthless and he took it in

 She mentioned 'worthless' & he took it in,
degraded Henry, at the ebb of love—
O at the end of love—
in undershorts, with visitors, whereof
we can say their childlessness is ending.
Love finally took over, after their two adopted: she has a month to go and Henry has (perhaps) many months to go until another Spring wakens another Henry, with far to go; far to go, pal.
My pussy-willow ceased.
The tiger-lily dreamed.
All we dream, uncertain, in Syracuse & here & there: dread we our loves, whereas the National Geographic is on its way somewhere.
We're not.
We're on our way to the little fair and the cops & the flicks & the single flick who'll solve our intolerable problem.
