I saw you Coco Blue, on the dance floor with your silver sunglasses, twisting the air between the melody and the beat. You died, then The Crowd gathered round, snapping shots & chatter, as they tried to capture the true shade of Coco Blue, while all the time arguing over whether your shoes were red or purple; even then your feet shouted out one final message to your giant magenta macaw in the Other Room, such a pretty bird.
Oh what a night for things
said and unsaid, other doors –
fly high big macaw.
Night vision photos
capture the movement between –
a dance floor heartbeat………….
Another ambiguous two sentence mystery narrative to go with the first three Night Vision compositions.Turned it into haibun by concluding with haiku stanzas. Added the music for the haunting quality – was not able to find a translation, but it is that uncertainty that fits the post.

Asemic Tarot Background & Uses
Asemic Tarot cards are distinctive in non-being. There is no accurate meaning/interpretation for any card, nor is there any formal layout. The ranking is capricious, as is the size and shape; they do not fit any standard. The names are a blend of real and alternative languages using a mix of cultures and symbols. For example, ᐅᒃᐱᒃ is an example of the Inuktitut constructed script.
Note that the back/front side of the cards are comparable to an inner side of a Schrödinger box. You won’t know what it is until – see it, perhaps.
The most often displayed sides can be used for kitchen sink clairvoyance or getting rid of earworm melodies. They are effective tools in holistic detection of random events and objects, as well as helpful in remembering words/names you forgot you knew. They can also be arranged to present a possible map/chart to something or other, maybe.
The cards are very effective at anticipating/remembering alternative timelines, and ruptures in Hypertime or Déjà vu. It is best to record any insights using Doodles, Surrealist Automatism or Glossolalia.
While doing some background research on asemic writing & art, I found a glitch text generator and other related glitch information. ( unfortunately I found some of this after my son went back to London after his holiday visit, so I am trying figure out what some of the other applications are supposed to do). Played a bit with the generator and incorporated in this series of asemic compositions. The attempt is very prominent in first image.
Asemic writing falls between visual art and contextual text. We can look at asemic writing as an art form that uses the codes and conventions of calligraphy/typography. In this case, both meaning and emotional impact is derived from the form, colours, and textures(art medium used), rather than information communicated through the text. Because the text does not act as a direct medium of conveying a message, it is asemic, without meaning.
Contextual text refers to disrupting the linkage between words, phrases and graphics/symbols. By mixing random letters, words, phrases, and graphics meaning breaks down. Multiple fonts, writing modes, languages, and systems of symbols may be combined. Modifying space and direction will further disrupt conventional interpretation. Layering of text and mixing textures and colours will increase the disruption. In this way, the audience is forced to rely on personal context and associations to build an emotional & intellectual response out of an asemic assemblage .

While stumbling about the internet, I also found some other poetry and word-play text-generators at Language is a Virus. I also found a page from Revolvy that brings together many related topics concerning Asemic writing.
