Dream Song 117: Disturbed when Henrys love returned with a hubby

by
 Disturbed, when Henry's love returned with a hubby,—
I see that, Henry, I don't put that down,—
he thought he had to think
or with a razor like a skating-rink
have more to say or more to them downtown
in the Christmas season, like a hobby.
Their letters will, released, shake the mapped world at some point, in the National Geographic.
(Friend, that hurt.
) It's horrible how near she was my hurt in the old days—now she's a lawyer twirled halfway around her finger and I am elated & vague for love of her and she is chilly & lost for love of me and we are for each other that which needs which, corresponding to Henry's mother but which can not have, like the lifting sea over each other's fur.
