Asemic Charts: Word Maps & Cartography of Letters

Asemic Charts map out words between the lines of a cartography of letters that fall into implied spaces of meaning – walking down pathways that mark the neurological echoes of language, standing at the corners of memory, just trying to make a point, as the checkered Mumbles drive by, carrying their indecipherable messages – fares past due .

 

Cayes of straight lines turn, as waves of scribbles crash & break up against the ignorant reefs and the continents of magnitude, shifting discourse between the public & private, pebbles tumbling and snap-chatting in the brine of sentiment – ships full, carrying vague memories, voyage out to the edge of knowledge and fall off into uncharted symbols of inarticulate notes & post-its = 3[ a shopping list of to-dos trapped in a crowded aisle of fridge door reminders & text messages twittering off; towards a horizon, a steady stream of verbiage winding down the spout of proclamations, declarations, and demanding questions twittering in the wind of popular culture’s current of trends].

 

False facts fly by clouds of alternative truths, casting shadows upon oft aged newspapers and messed missed memos of certitude – fingers follow the lines and curves of letter cartography, punching out the meaning of messages, while linking in the glaring light of day at three in the morning – or half past the International Dateline, as diplomacy dips and heaves in choppy seas – manoeuvring past melting relationship icebergs that grind out responses most apt. How the butterflies and albatrosses rise on feathered colloquial cognition & wing their way to new latitudes & longitudes of interpretations, translations, and adaptations into new forms of expressions, accents, dialects & idiolects . Mores and Memes twirl in the breezes of topical isles, leaving no moan unturned in the whining whinges of platitudes and vagrancies of fellowship broken by wordless ineptitude – the flowers and exotic fruit of friendly eyes & soft calming voices dance on the bright sand of a beckoning paradise.

Linguistic certainty seeks Mass Media proficiency midst the shoals of transparency – undisclosed eventualities line up in the Blocked Capillaries carrying spam messages and unsolicited calls tangling the lines of communication in a fretful scurrying of requests, demands, surveys, and surprising offers – One Time Only, Big Prizes & Win a trip to day-glow entry points of power and home security from the vicissitudes of human frailty that moves on infirm limbs towards an uncertain certainty of ending. How like a rose petal the fragrant smell of limited success is written in the margins of monthly endeavours – wasting time in the shadows of verbiage, chewing on sentences, falling over phrases of collaged ideas = too(L) mu(L)ch the Power of Beliefs & Ideologies that is a Pavement covered in the chalk colours of the our Soaring Hopes & Dreams, and cracked by our Feverish Fears & Insecurities. Whispers fill the cracks with innuendo & gossiping tongues – graffiti proclaims the margins will bleed into the main clauses of conviction with garish colours and spiralling scripts to inspire archetypal plays and loud mimes that chant out phonemes & morphemes of yet to be discovered languages that rise on the melodies of trees & galaxies.
