THE YOUNG LAUNDRYMAN, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: Ladies, I crave your indulgence for
Last Line: Your husband's shirts to wash, please, for wu kee.
Subject(s): Asian Americans; Laundry & Laundering


Ladies, I crave your indulgence for
My friend Wu Kee; young, agile, clear-eyed
And clean-limbed, his muscles ripple
Under the thin blue shirt; and his naked feet, in
Their straw sandals, lift at the heels, shift and
Find new postures continually.

Your husband's shirts to wash, please, for Wu Kee.
