what if john berryman wrote love songs?

what would that be like?
something along the lines 
of let's just jump and stew
i mean let's get drunk and screw
yeah, that's it
say it	  with some feeling

if john berryman wrote love songs
they would be translated 
into ghetto hebrew by saul bellow
forming constellations in harvard square
elergies for a not yet      forgotten delmore schwartz
clutching his chest
in the haunted phantom hallways of the dixieland motel
burning roman candles
for body heat
in the summer of 1966
