Could "Calligraglyph" Be Just a Joke?

via Bob Grumman's po-X-cetera:

I thought the first of these one of the best of Geof's fidgetglyphs when I got it on a postcard he sent me. In fact, I told him it deserved to be called a "calligraglyph," rather than disparaged as a "fidgetglyph," as I think I said here (except that I called it then a "Calligraphiglyph," I don't know why, except that I just wasn't thinking). Geof described it on his card as an expression of his poetics, by which he jokingly meant, I believe, that his poetics had nothing to do with words--so not with what I consider poetry.
