Desktop publisher is a poem written in clipart. It explores the deep truth of the cliché. It works through its emotions in the craft aisles of Spotlight. It leaves a cartoon flower with a sad face scribbled on A4 copy paper on a co-worker’s keyboard. Under the flower it says: ‘I’m sorry’ and it says ‘I’m fine’. It read your diary but only by accident, it just fell open on that page. It is desperate to tell you but can’t find the words. It is some drawings and a banner and it is a shadow dance and a sleight of hand magic trick and an ICQ message written in code sent from the family computer, back when it was kept in the living room, in 1998. Uh oh.
