    Using two small ink stamps, reading "Huffy Henry," as drawing tools to create a recognizable image
Huffy Henry
ink stamping on paper, 48" x 60"

Homage to the dead poet John Berryman and his "Dream Songs"

Dream Song #1

Huffy Henry hid the day,
unappeasable Henry sulked. 
I see his point,—a trying to put things over. 
It was the thought that they thought 
they could do it made Henry wicked & away. 
But he should have come out and talked. 

All the world like a woolen lover 
once did seem on Henry's side. 
Then came a departure. 
Thereafter nothing fell out as it might or ought. 
I don't see how Henry, pried 
open for all the world to see, survived. 

What he has now to say is a long 
wonder the world can bear & be. 
Once in a sycamore I was glad 
all at the top, and I sang. 
Hard on the land wears the strong sea 
and empty grows every bed
