The Belle #2

I promise that I will do
anything for you, a hard day's work
             So I am a postie for
Western Union, but I crash my
bicycle through a shopfront
                          I am
a garbage man, collecting
scraps from the sidewalk
                     but I stumble
                     and collect
a fruit-cart with my broom
                          whistling de--doo-oo-oo
like a turtledove. I am
a trolley driver where I love the work
because you are my
only passenger. I never slow the
                     trolley, just wave for
the people
who always wave back, have been
                     all day long. I leave the trolley
                     moving, scoop you up like pink
                     ice-cream. Whisk you on-board.
