Just learned that there is a James Joyce story called A Little Cloud. Many clouds referenced in the Bible , especially in the writings of John the Revelator.

I'm not sure I can say.

The phrase "a little cloud, the size of a man's hand" is in one of the Elijah stories, and it's possible Charles would have heard some sermonizing on that in his neo-Pentecostal upbringing (along with words like "repent.")

I'd like to see Leonard Cohen or Nick Cave cover this one.

Ah, you're thinking of Little Empty Boat. Can't think of too many songwriters that have written about impotence. Just Nick and Frank. I've Been Tired. That's about impotence, right?

I surmise it has more to do with the opposite, overactivity. That's what would make you "feel like Solomon." Through in Bathsheba ("she raised me") for the incestuous side. Best left unsolved really.
