Handwriting on the Phone

Handwriting on the Phone

I downloaded this app http://www.font.my/

and made a font from my own handwriting. It’s not perfect but not bad. Here’s a sample:



The words are from one of my poems, “a.m.”:


the streetlamps dim
to push sleep past the sidewalk
up through windows
into bedrooms
like an ether
with a deep breath that never exhales

collapsing with the smog and the traffic
until asphalt footsteps are as loud
as the ringing in your ears

and four o’clock comes
from endless birdsongs
courting darkness
as if it were
