A language of Deafish

Deaf listening produces fleeting words in a language here called Deafish. Collage of face in Roman fresco with mouth and ear fractured, Bletchley Park computer for decrypting messages, overlaid on postcard of Beat era pulp novel. Codes of hearing everywhere, including the two and a half pence stamp of Queen Elizabeth II or ER. With thanks to Gerald Shea’s “lyricals” – see Song Without Words.
