Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
The Young Laundryman
By William Carlos Williams
 
From “Broken Windows”

LADIES, I crave your indulgence for
My friend Wu Kee; young, agile, clear-eyed
And clean-limbed, his muscles ripple
Under the thin blue shirt; and his naked feet, in
Their straw sandals, lift at the heel, shift and        5
Find new postures continually.
 
Your husband’s shirts to wash, please, for Wu Kee.
