Display signs were made in the stockroom
on a hand set type, ink, and press.
In one high school the school newspaper was
set and printed on a similar printing press.
Reading the set type was something I found
was “natural” for me to do.

prompt: upside down (Robert Johnston image and poem)

by Katabela Wilson

Whatever else I had in mind for a prompt today

 got washed away when I saw this. 

The wonderful upside down picture 

of the questioning silver eye.

How have you felt, been, seen things “upside down” 

in your own experience
