Part of the machine

    Newer Older

    How many nights spent together, afraid of your noise.
    My first lines, immature like august grape,
    took form thanks to your mechanical precision,
    a poetry made of metallic hammering,
    the strength of fingers guided by vision
    unleashed on those defenseless letters -
    my voice; and for this I'll be forever grateful, dear
    old, at-rest, unforgotten, alphabet machine.

      Tecnicamente migliori sempre.
      Non è che va a scapito della luce gloriosa dei tuoi scatti?

      Many a school report flowed from the click-clacking of keys like this. Perfect mood.

      Italo, grazie. Sono alla ricerca del right balance tra scatti vendibili e mia visione; vedrai alla prima escursione che la mia luce resta sempre la stessa :)

      Mi hanno sempre affascinata le macchine da scrivere..quanti ricordi! :-)
      Condivido il commento sulla tecnica e capisco la ricerca che stai effettuando. Però non sono affatto preoccupata. Trovo che anche in questo scatto la luce sia molto bella e resti sempre riconoscibilmente tua! :-)

      Oh wow. I love this Lu. Perfectly said, and the photo + words capture a bit of the mystery that happens when a poet like you sits down to find those elusive words. Wonderful amico.
