A 'glyph' is a carved work or ornamental mark. The word is sometimes used in the Southwestern United States for 'petroglyph', a type of rock-drawing left by ancestors of American Indians. In this case, it means a "doodle'--a significant one, such as Pompeii grafitti or the boasts of Spanish explorers on Inscription Rock in New Mexico--but an impromptu human scribble.
