i miss my navy blue typewriter

except when it is raining

because the plip of rain reminds me of the patter of keys

and i am comforted

by the smooth paper and ink

and the memory of the clinking noises

that soothed my heart

If I had my sidescratched typewriter

(instead of my first one), I would

fill pages with my words

and trashcans with crumpled mistakes

and silences full of new worlds.

I would never stop as my inner secrets bled onto pape

the feeling almost spiritual in nature

a release from reality's punches

falling in the most delightful and peculiar way

falling through Alice's rabbit-holes

tripping after the White Rabbit

and ending in a Wonderland of words.
