Thirty Days, Thirty Poems, Thirty Reasons to Change My Typewriter Ribbon

Folks - I am doing this again: raising some money to help make life a bit easier for our local immigrant community. CNAM welcomes and serves immigrants in Western Massachusetts with free English classes and a range of support services. I did this back in 2016 and 2017 and it was a great experience. Won't you look over my typing shoulder once again and throw a penny in the old man's hat, which I will then give to CNAM? I'm planning on writing a poem a day on my dad's old manual Olympia. When it's all over, I'm going to make a little book and send it to whoever wants one. I will also post the poems somewhere as I progress. As these are all first drafts by definition, please be gentle. PS All the poems I write will be posted at this link:
