Dream Song 8: The weather was fine. They took away his teeth

 The weather was fine.
They took away his teeth, white & helpful; bothered his backhand; halved his green hair.
They blew out his loves, his interests.
'Underneath,' (they called in iron voices) 'understand, is nothing.
So there.
' The weather was very fine.
They lifted off his covers till he showed, and cringed & pled to see himself less.
They instaleld mirrors till he flowed.
'Enough' (murmmered they) 'if you will watch Us instead, yet you may saved be.
Yes.
' The weather fleured.
They weakened all his eyes, and burning thumbs into his ears, and shook his hand like a notch.
They flung long silent speeches.
(Off the hook!) They sandpapered his plumpest hope.
(So capsize.
) They took away his crotch.
