Ode to a Copy Machine MAG

By Michael Croland, Melville, NY

The fascination of duplication
I sit on you
And press your green button
Now others can view my behind, too.

The wonders of Xeroxing
Taking an original
Repeating a pattern
With respect to the original
And no desires for modification

Paper enters
It exits with designs
Designs of me and for me
Whatever I may please

The cost is not a problem
I enjoy feeding you coins
You swallow them down
Into your strong body

I need you for replication
Without you I am one
With you I am plentiful
Thank you, copy machine, for all your help
