Acoustical Writing

The guards turned him over to the emperor, along with his pen, that elegant weapon of an earlier age. "He was armed only with this."

Etchings on brass plates, impress on clay tablets. A finger writes in dust in 1st Century Judea. Chisel in stone, chalk on a slate, palimpest, a bar killed on this tree (knife carve), oxen-skull mile messages, quill dip, fountain drip, blotting paper, sand and blow, bathroom mirror fingers, dusty car fingers ("Wash me"), spray paint protest, pencil on paper scratching for seeds.
