Dream Song 69

Love her he doesn’t but the thought he puts
into that young woman
would launch a national product
complete with TV spots and skywriting
outlets in Bonn and Tokyo
I mean it

Let it be known that nine words have not passed
between herself and Henry;
looks, smiles.
God help Henry, who deserves it all
every last part of that infernal & unconscious
woman, and the pain.

I feel as if, unique, she … Biddable?
Fates, conspire.
– Mr Bones, please.
Vouchsafe me, Sleepless one,
a personal experience of the body of Mrs Boogry
before I pass from lust!
