DPF / Berryman

For Henry and John, from 77 Dream Songs.

from 77 Dream Songs: 13  / by John Berryman

God bless Henry. He lived like a rat,

with a thatch of hair on his head

in the beginning.

Henry was not a coward. Much.

He never deserted anything; instead

he stuck, when things like pity were thinning.
