TRANsymbolATE

“TRANSymboLATE”

and

Hello, new word

and new style poem

I’ve come to take

your numbers home.

1111 1111 1111 1111

Through love of fours

in stanza sets

and patterned rows

I forgive debts.

2222 2222 2222 2222

Use of quanta

stating logic

gives rise to play

with symbolic.

3333 3333 3333 3333

Mind traveling

off course I’ve veered

to code-create

what’s very weird.

4444 4444 4444 4444

….so here’s the poem::::

1 + = …………………………….One Plus Equals

3, #, #s ………………………….Three sharp numbers

2 + 4 & …………………………..two plus four and

@ . ………………………………..at period

1 & ………………………………..one ampersand

% ^ ……………………………….Percent carat

“ + ‘ ………………………………..quote and quoted

( ) …………………………………parentheses

NOTE: This was written on January 8 and held back because it was submitted to a publication. Since it was rejected, I am free to place it here. Since then, this fascinating article came into my reality:

Well…I loved this article so much! Imagine this: heat maps of punctuation turning into art!
