Keeping on Top of Things
I want to be alone. But I have to see
the chiropodist, the dentist,
the car mechanic, the ear-syringer,
the roofer, the window cleaner,
and a man to cut back the creeper which is forcing its way in
through the bedroom window.
Thank goodness I don’t have to see
the manicurist, the otologist,
the reflexologist, the phrenologist
the hypnotherapist, the gynaecologist
the Chinese herbalist, or the psychiatrist –
At least not this week.
