Monday brings us fresh Upsideclown:

"This is the sign of Earth." He is lying on a hill, sloping gently back to the factory town where he grew up. She straddles him, and reaches past his right ear. He catches a flash of dark blue nail polish as she scoops up a handful of the loamy soil. "Open wide."

Dan is reminiscing in his typically good article, Small Town Boy.

Also don't forget last week's Upsideclown, Victor's Board to Death: meetings, minutes, and the Domain of Hell.
