Typed white index card that reads: "You left your typewriter at my Apartment // straight from the tortured poets department // I think some things I never say // Like, "Who uses typewriters anyway? 
... // I laughed in your face and said, // You're not Dylan Thomas, I'm not Patti Smith." //--Taylor Swift, The Tortured Poets Department 
Dylan Thomas used an Imperial Good Companion. // Patti Smith used a late 60s/early 70s Smith-Corona portable. // --Chris Aldrich, tortured poet

Tortured poets Dylan Thomas and Patti Smith both used typewriters. I still use several too.
