Thanks to everyone who stopped by Typewriter Poetry at the Venice Art Crawl last week. I had an awesome time meeting you all and typing a bunch of poems. Blame all misspellings and obtuse rhymes on the free nachos and cups of wine!

Here’s a poem my friend Jimmy requested; the subject was “poet’s choice” so I was inspired by photography, Jimmy’s passion.

typewriter poetry

Picture me curious
and delighted
by the world
and all its misgivings
a chance at reliving
the thumbnail phrases
I wrapped myself too tightly in.

rhyme. I like your poem “picture me curious” because I see it as a line of conversation between two people in love.

I bought a rhyming dictionary when I decided to write the great American screenplay so my dialog would rhyme…
