Ètude for the Typewriter

I need to find the rhythm
of this machine
that has been rescued from dust
and ruin and rust
of a millennia of waste

where is it?
in the keys?
behind the platen?
beneath the type?

I'll find it
in the hard presses
the skipped letters
the typos
it's somewhere in there
lurking
waiting to dance
