Asemics # 2 contribution from John Bennett

John Bennett aka Onword John – a dab hand at words for sure!  The visuals of Johns language use are well known to us all – the way he takes these unwilling critters and bends and shapes and remakes them to suit his own vocabulary - and the amazing thing? They happily bend to his will :-)

John sent a note with his work - I hope he does not mind me quoting:

Hi Cheryl,

Here are 15 copies of my piece for Asemics 16 # 2 - thanks (my pleasure) for mailing them with yours! Did send you some $$ (no-where to be seen!) but I'm not sure if it would be of any value there (is that of any importance???) - bank currency exchanges being what they are... (ever tried dealing in Rands? They're crossed between a cent and a pence).  I should say that I dont think these pieces of mine are asemic at all, but plenty folks do so who am I to argue? ... etc

And herein lies the point of interest for me:

At the very back of Johns chapter lies this asemic text. A tiny red bit.  Many/most of us have addressed our asemic text to the WHOLE page, on every page.  This is like a secret asemic, one tiny one at the end, hiding in amongst all the visual poetry.  We have used image and overlays, collage and paint - John just snuck one in at the end :-) - FAB!

Thanks John - they have already been posted and should be hitting the world this week X
