Poem 20: Epicenter

by | Apr 29, 2018 | poetry | 7 comments

When I spotted this Webster’s at an antique mall, I took the opportunity to find my new theme for a poem. I also picked up a device for writing a poem: a 1950 Royal KMG for only $35. I cleaned the typewriter, equipped it with a new ribbon, and used to write comments on a batch of student papers as well as this poem. Tomorrow it goes on sale at Urban Legend Typewriters.

    I've got a typewriter in my collection from that same typewriter shop.

    Neat. For some reason I've seen their labels on multiple typewriters recently.

    That's a perfect example for Robin Williams' character in Dead Poets Society on his theory why the language was invented… ;)

    I love that no matter what bargain KMGs and KMMs abound. If you were on a budget and just wanted a typewriter to play with you could hardly do better than to get one of these.
    Nice poem too!

    Want a typewriter that really sounds like a typewriter? The rat-a-tat-tat of the KMG is hard to beat. It's one of my favorites.
