    The Window Washer

    There was a secretary working on the 34th floor
    at her desk in a chair by the new boss’s door.
    She could work and polish nails with a snobbish delight,
    type a letter, take dictation in the absence of light,
    brew the coffee, answer phones, solve the problems that bind,
    dab on lipstick and perfume, arrange a meeting on time.


    Outside her window, lightly beat the rain and freezing snow
    on a window washer working on the 34th floor.
    Up at dawn, pack a lunch, wife and kids are asleep.
    Off to work, catch a train from the somber, silent street.
    Check the gears, add some oil and it’s up and up he’ll go
    to meet with Mr. Clean upon the 34th floor.


    She writes a note and holds it up. He sees it at last.
    His frozen fingers write one too and puts it up to glass.
    Her’s said “It’s 72 degrees! Come in and take a chair.”
    His said “It’s 50 bucks an hour mam, in freezing rain out here.”

    Just when you think your thinking is the only way that’s true,
    there’s a window washer working with another point of view.

      You always make me smile. Your poetry is fun to read and you make it look easy but looking easy is only achieved by the great deal of skill you have

          I'm bumble bee happy that you had some fun here Parkinsonspoet. You know, some people are so blindly convinced that their opinions, biases, likes and dislikes are correct enough that everyone is wrong not having them too. It’s the kind of disease that makes everyone sick except the one who’s got it. Whoa! I just had to write this for those so afflicted and may just be on the lookout for an inexpensive medical cure of the poetic kind! Thanks for your great words Pp and also for droppin’ in for a little window washing. Makes my day that you brought your smile with ya. Now that's entertainment! LOL. Namyh
