Day 6: You Daily Dose of Typewriter Poetry

There are a few favorites for today. I’m enjoying the interaction with poem and inanimate object–beyond typewriters, there’s one with a tiny rope, and another that uses typewriter stationery.






suck myself out the heart i give it back

For this year’s National Poetry Month, I’m working on the poetry for my art book, suck myself out the heart i give it back. If you’re enjoying these poems, feel free to read about the concept or view the entire poetry collection.

Today’s poem was inspired by unrelated observations which ended up tying together nicely.

Donate to Tupelo Press

For #NationalPoetryMonth, I’m fundraising on behalf of Tupelo Press, a small literary publisher. Tupelo’s 30/30 Project is an all-year monthly round of writing a poem a day. Check out their website and read the collection of poetry we’ve volunteered to write.


Enjoying the work I’ve been steadily producing? Let me know! I also encourage you to donate in my name to Tupelo Press. 100% of proceeds go to their literary press, it’s tax-deductible, and you’d be a patron of the arts.

Looking forward to tomorrow’s fresh batch of typewriter poetry for National Poetry Month. Thanks for following the adventure!
