Waiting for a Page to Print
on a Postcript Printer

Firm click, then
Pumping down.

Lights flashing...
(Evidence of processing.)

Waiting…(computer and printer
discussing fonts and bounding boxes.)

Hidden light show,
Millions of dots placing,

A warming sound...
Tenative...ready? Yes!

Wheels and belts move,
pushing a blank.

Pressure, pinching, peeling.
Magic image!
