Dream Song 5: Henry sats in de bar and was odd

 Henry sats in de bar & was odd,
off in the glass from the glass,
at odds wif de world & its god,
his wife is a complete nothing,
St Stephen
getting even.
Henry sats in de plane & was gay.
Careful Henry nothing said aloud but where a Virgin out of cloud to her Mountain dropt in light, his thought made pockets & the plane buckt.
'Parm me, lady.
' 'Orright.
' Henry lay in de netting, wild, while the brainfever bird did scales; Mr Heartbreak, the New Man, come to farm a crazy land; an image of the dead on the fingernail of a newborn child.
