Asemic Haïku for Marie - from De Villo Sloan



Sloan's work is taking a turn towards serious asemic writing (not that it wasn't serious before), and I was thrilled to get one of his new creations in my mailbox the other day. This is a truly mesmerizing piece, in fact I can barely keep my eyes off of it. More than writing, it is a personalized haïku, which makes it even more special, if that is possible.

The poet writes on the back of the card: "it is about… Continue

A man may know the world... - From Lisa Iversen



... without leaving his own home.

Lisa has kindly added me to her IUOMA friends a couple of weeks ago only, and here I am, sitting on my sofa somewhere on an island on the other side of the world, holding her work in my hands while sipping my morning coffee. I do feel that I can travel the world without leaving home, and that's what my travels are these days.

Because you can't tell from the photo, this is an A4 page. A bit… Continue

Received from De Villo Sloan, USA--Q for Bifidus

Asemic poetry exists as an apparition of traditional poetry. The beauty of it is that while there is no language "to read" it still retains the sense of text and meaning. The controversial Marshall McLuhan, in his 1962 book, The Gutenberg Galaxy, predicted a post-literate society where reading and writing will no longer be necessary. I see De Villo's piece as post-literate because I know his mind is deep and wide and his…

The cult of the Giant Amaryllis - from RCBz



I like to receive RCBz's japanesque cards, his wild imagination never fails to impress. Japan's Shintoism is largely based on Animism, and I'm not surprised if a shrine worshiping a giant amaryllis actually existed somewhere (it would be less weird than the cult of the Giant Penis in Kawasaki, true story, check it out).

I like the back of the card because the red symbol could also represent the typical gates of a shrine, to… Continue
