Robin Hood Ale

ROBIN HOOD ALE

by Eric Chaet

Peering under sweat glistening lashes
sweeping scraps from beneath big press
building delicate pile
then climbing rungs
straining calf & thigh
dangling shining can
#11 green printer’s ink
filling trough
gathering information
& 2 & 39 hundredths fed’l reserve notes
per spying hour
grabbing 30 steaming 3-ply cardboard sheets
straightening armful with free hand
guiding
dropping into gobbly feeding mouth
over & over all night fast
someone’s machine
who doesn’t know my name
whose name I don’t know
suspicious foreman gnawing cigar
scratching paunch & checking
as press spits ’em out
green worded:

ROBIN HOOD ALE
ROBIN HOOD ALE
