there sat down,once,a thing on henry's heart

The Scream Songs

I let John Berryman loose at the zoo.
But Henry and Mr. Bones freed all the animals.

Berryman entertained himself with a bottle,
and Berryman entertained himself with a girl.

Henry rode off on a zebra.
Mr. Bones galloped away on ostriches.

Berryman contemplated his past
as if it was his future.

Berryman mistook a bridge for the book
of nightmares he mistakenly kept calling songs
