Subject(s): Business; Printing & Printers; Businessmen; Businesswomen

Here are the pin-ups of the nude,
nubile tits and shadowed bellies
lying in wait with bleak, amused smiles.
And these men at the type fount
find it inconvenient to look up
and wink or brush against them
to and from the composing table.

Off the rushed streets I come
with business figures crowding in my head
and stagger, silent, but catch myself
quickly. These men could think me
queer for looking.
