this is not true, but i wish it were

I feel like the secretary to the morning whose only

responsibility is to take down its bright, airy dictation

until it’s time to go to lunch with the other girls,

all of us ordering the cottage cheese with half a pear.

(an excerpt from “Tuesday, June 4th, 1991” by Billy Collins)
