Dream Song 109: She mentioned worthless and he took it in
She mentioned 'worthless' & he took it in,
degraded Henry, at the ebb of loveâ€”
O at the end of loveâ€”
in undershorts, with visitors, whereof
we can say their childlessness is ending.
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 on our way to the little fair
and the cops & the flicks & the single flick
who'll solve our intolerable problem.
