WATCH| Poet Jacqueline Suskin sits by her antique typewriter in the hustle of the Hollywood Farmers' Market every Sunday. She stands out from the other vendors in her red flower dress, the short sleeves exposing tattoos on her arms. The 31 year old says this is her Poem Store. Your subject. Your price.
I have a really big collection of dresses and I have 14 typewriters and I'm very much about the aesthetic of what I do.
Suskin says it's not just the words, it's the way she delivers them. She takes everything into account. Her clothes, the texture of the paper she types on, the color of the typewriter, and even the way she holds herself. It's all part of being approachable.
Suskin is an accomplished author as well, her latest book is about gratitude titled, "Go Ahead & Like it."
This is the poem she wrote for me, about my recent move to Santa Monica, as we waited for customers. Click here to read some of her other poems.
