Abandoned Tools

I remember the last time I used a typewriter a year or two ago; I was quite impressed. I just pressed a key and a corresponding letter appeared on the page a fraction of a second later. Amazing.

I saw an abandoned typewriter in an unused corner of an office. Later that day I saw another typewriter on top of a garbage barrel. Both discarded machines reminded me of something sad, although I couldn't figure out what. Or why.
