When the protagonist wakes up he goes into a dark room which has "GENTS" written on the door as if it were a public bathroom. The protagonist is then approached by that same sailor from the first scene, who is now flexing his muscular body. The sailor then beats up the protagonist for asking for a light for his cigarette. After this the sailor lights the cigarette for the protagonist and leaves. This must have been the setup, because shortly after, a gang of sailors approach the protagonist and beat him up pretty badly.
The next scene brings us to the original sailor who lights a firework in his pants. Then we're shown the protagonist again wearing a tree on his head, which he burns in the fireplace along with the pictures from earlier. We are then shown the protagonist in his bed again, this time there is someone in bed with him, but who is not revealed to us for some reason. Maybe it was that first sailor. Maybe that was the protagonist's lover. Anger is known to focus his work on taboo subjects.
