Typewriter Poet Ashley Naftule

“Adobe Rose” the Royal Quiet De Luxe

Post-Script: I admire talented people like Ashley. I've wanted to try my hand at public typewriter poetry, but have been smart enough to know that it takes more than owning a typewriter. You actually have to be a poet, with a prolific enough imagination to compose on the spot. Not sure I could do that. Perhaps what I need is a training regimen, like give myself a random assignment and half an hour. Do that several times a week, build up my poetry-writing chops. In the meantime, we have real poets like Ashley to keep us satisfied.

I'm sure it's exactly like Krav, put in the time and your imaginary muscles will strengthen to meet the mission. (:

I think you inspired him!

If you don't have it yet, check out the book Typewriter Rodeo for encouragement. It's all about the moment and the personal interaction.

I happened to pick that very book up while at the Phoenix Type-In!
