The Typewriter

Break off the key,
he urged me,
he’ll still work
humanising
the animal
with bulging teeth

so I took
cleaned
brushed
opened up it’s voice
and oppressed the animal
to hesitant obedience
Then
the fingerpointing move
of olympic force
like a spear
shot
through empty air

one letter
one..

we used to have strong fingers
to play the paino
creating
texts
en forte

Journalism used to be sports
