Brian, you have my utmost respect.

Given the way that formatting works on this board, that must have taken hours!

(I use a very old version of photoshop. I'll look to see if any of the free online photoshop versions let you fill in shapes with text. And for those that might not be aware, word will let you fill in basic pre-set shapes with text, although there's always a bit of tweaking involved in terms of mid-word breaks)

I've deleted my original post since Julie has kindly produced my poem in the following post.

Here you go, Rogerbob. The tags [ L][/ L] (without the spaces) insert the equivalent of about three horizontal spacebars, and the tags [ S][/ S] (without the spaces) insert the equivalent of one. I've used multiples of [ L][/ L] tags to do this. I've put two sets before the bottom line--if you intend the poem to start flush against the left margin, I can remove two sets, all the way up.

STARTING FROM THE BOTTOM

                                                  the sky
                                             against
                                        your head
                                   not to bump
                              please be careful
                         go racing by,
                    and clouds
               and watching birds
          When falling up

I don't deal with the new generation of hipster bebop junkies. Strictly with old timers.

Thin sallow faces

Bitter twisted mouths

Stiff fingered stylized gestures

Rob Stuart - I love that image. Very wry, very word-based, very clever.

Sarah-Jane
(it took me a while to realise I had to click on the photo icon to view it, so pointing this out just in case there are other equally inept people about, which is unlikely but possible)
