Poet for Hire


I spent some time in the French District in New Orleans Louisiana earlier this year and couldn’t get enough of the place.

As I was walking down the street I could hear the sounds of a typewriter clicking and when I turned the corner I saw this scene. He had a sign that said “Poet for Hire”. He would ask the person the subject then proceed to type up a poem for them. I wish I had recorded a little soundbite to include with this image. Something I will be trying to do in the future.
