Dream Song 16: Henrys pelt was put on sundry walls

 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.
Ay, in Sealdah Station some possessionless children survive to die.
The Chinese communes hum.
Two daiquiris withdrew into a corner of the gorgeous room and one told the other a lie.
