Interpret it as puns coordinates, and as directions and quality. Up arrow means up, +y, and also "why?" Left arrow means -x and also a lack or loss, or something worse or forgotten. Right arrow means +x and a gain, or something better, and also "right" and "write". Down arrow means down, -y, or "why not?" We get: +y => Why -x => forget [suffer loss] +x => it is better to write -y => (it) down!
