O'Kay, O'Tink...a bit of "devil's advocacy" here...what I would do with the Ezra Pound stuff is viewing from an alternate perspective...
...because every once in a while, I just go to some haiku and its accompanying philosophy for a few days or hours, to immerse myself (as much as possible) in a non-Western way of thought. Coz that is what I am guessing is going on with Chinese calligraphy! Here is a link I located for you, something to do with a calligraphy exhibition in San Francisco in 2013:
"Out of Character: Decoding Chinese Calligraphy, which closes this weekend at San Francisco’s Asian Art Museum, is a sprawling, gorgeous arrangement of fine historic Chinese calligraphy from. To set the tone, it starts with a quote from calligrapher Sun Guoting’s Treatise on Calligraphy (687 ACE): 'Truly, [fine calligraphy] may be called the result of wisdom and skill achieving joint excellent (sic), of mind and hand acting in harmony.' "
And then, same article, here is a photo of The Sutra on the Lotus of the Sublime Dharma, done by some fine fellow around 1300 A.D....very special ink and paper, no doubt, in a package with the calligraphy all contributing to the overall message of love/wisdom/compassion beyond the reach of the mind/mental process.
