Brave Sir Henry swims the serpentine
In 16 seconds flat
We applaud him from the plimsoll line;
Sir Henry lifts his hat
We drink some wine
We hold up signs
We give him 9 point 87 every time (every time!)
That's just the way things are in heaven

Here...

Sweet Katrina preens in six way mirrors
Under triple moons
I have seen her glide along the river
Murmuring this tune

Here...

A little bird just told me
That my time is nearly through
And soon I must forget this place
And crawl right back to you

Childhood ends
And "Sense" descends
And I'll believe in you
I'll be leaving you

    General CommentIt's bizarre trying to figure out this narrative, but it almost makes me think of reverse death. It's like somebody is up in heaven, but they're being told that their time in heaven is going to end and they'll be reborn back on Earth. It's clear that there's a person that the narrator is very fond of.

    I wish I knew more about this. It's beautiful.
