Poem of the day: tolerant

by | Apr 25, 2020 | poetry | 2 comments

To vary the rules of the game (hey, I made the rules, I can vary them) I turned not to Webster’s, but to my collection of novels by Harry Stephen Keeler, and played the Sortes Keelerianae.



I know, not much of a poem. (I recommend reading Keeler’s two pages for a much more intriguing literary experience.) My excuse for dashing this one off is that I’m getting very busy as the semester winds down and I gear up to teach a two-week intensive course next month.

Today’s typewriter is a 1938 Royal Quiet that needs its top repainted, but is still a good performer and quite a beauty.

    Who is Dick Hoyr the typewriter man? Is he still alive? Where does he live now? Is he still running typewriter-related businesses? Ahh…those labels on good old used machines always trigger my curiosity.

    Sure is a beautiful Royal.
    Tolerant is a good subject.
