Circle Five

Once while asleep I saw Raymond
(who sells textbooks)
in a pleasure palace
an Abyssinian maid
Round the crystal walls
were rows of astonishing paintings
(all of them signed Raymond)
When I woke to my Bay Ridge flat
and three botched canvases
I remembered nothing of the paintings
how much they’d made me hate Raymond!
