cfg fgg fg fd dg.
n.  the title of a visual poem by Mike Cannell.  The poet explains: “Like an oriental calligrapher, I inscribe glyphs on the even white space.  I mould shadows into shapes, fluid forms into concrete reality; or rather it becomes something that suggests meaning—but has none.  No semantic meaning.  There may be no words in these poems, but there is an emotional meaning.  Meaning?  What is that?  Meaning is fleeting.  Meaning is a phase, a phrase, a step.  Meaning is insubstantial.  It exists—then it exits, never staying for long.”
