Punctuation poems: full stop.

Wednesday, 9 April 2008 16:22:14

I'm a stop.
A full stop.
Not a half stop
or a quarter stop
But a fully full stop.
I lie on the line
Waiting for the right word
To come along
And then
I trip it up.
I wait for the sentence
To run its course
Before I slip
My tiny little dot
In the way.
Like that.

That's all I've got to say today. Full stop.
