On Tuesday, my colleague Tyrone Williams and I set up an Underwood and Smith-Corona outside Xavier University’s main classroom building. We’d told no one in advance—it was a pop-up poetry and thought shop. Over about an hour and a half, we were kept busy by faculty, students, staff, and even a dean who came by and provided topics for our typing. Usually, each topic got a poem from Ty and a thought from me. This was a great way to break the ice and provide relief during finals week—as well as a way to loosen up our own minds. We plan to do it again!

    Those are some nice poems and thoughts. I like the first Heidegger.
    How do you like typing using the Underwood case/table?

    It worked great — it's perfectly stable.

    Glad to see there was no mutual exclusivity—i.e., the poems were thoughtful, and the thoughts poetic!

    Creo que lo que hiciste es parte del alma de la máquina de escribir (por decirlo de alguna manera). Sin actos generosos como éste, sin mecanógrafos, las máquinas serían una cosa más por allí.

    These are all so good – nimble minds at work. I don't know how you do it.
