orphic tabs or sheets / differx. 2007-2020

One of my first flarfy & spam-derived “orphic tabs” (or “orphic sheets”) was published by the late William James Austin in 2007, in his mag “BLACKBOX”, Sept. 2007, the “summer collisions” issue.

About that issue I could only find an email in the Spidertangle newsletter, Sept. 16, 2007.
(The old link williamjamesaustin.com/orphicsheet002.html doesn’t work anymore, of course).


Other pieces appeared in Starfishpoetry, and Poetry Kessel-lo (two now offline sites).

Find others in The Flux I Share (Jan., 2008): ex fluxishare.blogspot.com/2008/01/orphic-tab-029.html now http://the-flux-i-share.blogspot.com/2008/01/orphic-tab-029.html; & in SayingSomething: http://sayingsome.blogspot.com/2008/01/orphic-tab-040.html


Then serious asemic orphic tabs appeared in The New Postliterate (Sept., 2009): http://thenewpostliterate.blogspot.com/2009/09/asemic-orphic-sheets-from-marco.html

A sheet in Italian has appeared in facebook only.

Here below are some of the pieces, and more ones (click to enlarge, read & enjoy):

[r] _ raggiera o controindicazione di identità / differx. 2018

Una dichiarazione di identità legata a più scritture, tagliata e mescolata (cut-up), diventa una controdichiarazione (a suo modo, anche, di poetica):
