Poems I wrote in April #4

A poem about numbers

42 skirts with typewriters, 7 rows of 6
Nylons, blusher, lipstick, coiffed hair
Numbered lumber forms with carbons
A razor blade for our mistakes

Living for lunch and the crossword puzzle
Living for breaks and a Hostess Twinkie

Mad men around the edges
Loose ties after lunch
Whiskey breath, nicotine fingers
Our only names Honey and Sweetheart

Not sure how I survived all summer
But I learned what we do for money
