Dream Song 69: Love her he doesn't but the thought he puts

Love her he doesn’t but the thought he puts
Into that young woman
Would launch a national product
Complete with TV spots & skywriting
Outlets in Bonn & 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 least 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!
