A little while ago, I found the time to do Typewriter Poetry. I was headed to Venice by bus, but got off near the Promenade to refill my water. While walking down an alley, I spotted a mint condition cardboard box. Tore it up, Sharpie’d it down, and ended up settling down near 3rd Street instead.

Here’s a poem I typed for Jeff. Can you spot the typos? :) He was kind enough to share the photos he took. Thanks again, Jeff!

Did you see the prima donna
across the street in Tijuana?

No. And please
step off the rhymes.

Time is just a beat
we are anxious to complete.

  1. Oh, that is just beautiful! I really love the spirit of your work, billimarie. I so dig your photographs too!

    1. Haha, yes. I never notice typos until I look at the poem again. I’ve got severe case of thoughts moving faster than writing/typing abilities :)
