Have you seen Maiden, Mother, Crone?

Love letters
in a glass jar on my desk
All 26
Twenty-six typewriter hammers
in a jar on my desk
Love letters
Each letter of the alphabet
I wanted to have them
I like strange curiosities like that
Pieces of the printer world
Tools of the writer
I watched as he methodically took apart
the old broken electric typewriter
Neither of us realizing the amount of work with this task
2600 parts in an old electric typewriter
dozens of tiny springs
We never knew
He wasn’t deterred
A box filled with random parts removed
Respect for those who repaired these miracles of technology
now obsolete
And he presented me with my typewriter hammers
And I have my love letters in a jar on my desk
And another with the punctuation to go with it
