Would You Mind Typing This For Me?

(first printed in Walking Slow, Lazara Press, 1985)

Of course, I wouldn’t mind.
I am a typist;
I am paid to type.
I will not, therefore, fix your bicycle,
reupholster your couch,
wash your windows,
serve you tea,
drive you to the airport,
or prune your apple trees.
But I shall certainly type this for you.

May, 1981
