In 2013 I transcribed eight personal poems using a broken 1970's electric typewriter. In 2015 I asked some friends to read them.
"Sarah is not the poet of Love but she has written poems. Recently, she found an electric typewriter and transcribed some sombre ones she’d written years ago. The typewriter refused entire swaths of alphabet; more page got through. The poems, once dense, lightened. Now friends who’d never seen them before read them aloud, reshaping lines like oo gropped reentess. Working to form the words, the readers smile spontaneously and in spite of themselves. Not regressively, but redemptively." -- Excerpt from "love's moves", Eye Rhymes exhibition essay by Heather White
