The printing is the easiest,
Fastest part.
It’s all that comes before it,
All the preparation —
The typesetting,
The layout,
Waiting for the paper to come in.
Every part of it is important.

It’s sort of nice
When you walk into some place,
A bank or something,
And you see your printing.
I’m in the habit —
Being a pressman —
When I go anyplace
And there’s printing or brochures,
I pick it up,
Even if I’m not going to read it,
Because maybe I’m helping some printer
Keep a job.
