Clunk & Jam

 

 

Clunk & Jam .

Through the clunks and jams and carriage returns of the dusty old beast that rides my desk, I slap silence with letters on waving arms, clunking out truth on a black rubber roll, as jams slow the rush and errors have a say.

 Footnote:   ‘Clunk & Jam’ is the title of the book.   The book was typed on an old manual typewriter – Clunk & Jam being the sound of the typing and also the above poem about the process.
