The English language part is just a poor translation, a poor ghost of the ideograms.
Maybe I should coin a new term for ideogram poems. “Icoems” (icon+poem). Author Dr. Joseph Suglia, ( of “Watchout” fame; Table 41 is his new novel) suggests “poeticographs”. Maybe, but maybe something shorter could be come up with. Any ideas?

A new viewer referred me to dscript.org, another conlang site, where I found signs for logic gates. (I tip my hat to the referrer and to dscript.org.) I didn’t like dscript.org’s particular signs much, but they set me thinking about what I would like better, which I did, coming up with the below. I don’t like my results a lot either, but at least they are clear and constitute progress–they work. They might grow on me.
I know ideograms have a lot of potential as a poetic medium, which I’ve tried to show in the below.
Short video showing my ideogram for “algorithm”. Having the “list” element first emphasizes that an algorithm is foremost a list, a member of the “list” family.
