12:00PM First Impression: Typewriter Poetry on Demand. Five award-winning Boston poets team up on the typewriter assembly line to create spontaneous, original poetry for passersby. Providing game constraints for three words of inspiration, the poets receive chosen words from participants and co-write a customized poem on the spot, passing a page of poetry down a three-station typewriter pipeline, adding lines of verse along the way. The final poet delivers the first-ever public reading of the poem, honoring its commissioner, and stamps it with an official “First Impression” seal of approval. The commissioner of the work gets to take home the one-and-only copy of the poem, hot off the press, see additional details here.
