Don’t Lose Your Punctuation!
By Bill Cottringer

Don’t lose your punctuation!
Dare to be—
The one goose out of formation,
The uncooked hard-boiled egg,
The best Twin Peaks episode;
Or don’t give up being—
The unlit fire,
The unsung song,
The unloved lover;
Just be—
You and all of you,
With the punctuation—
TP rolling your way,
Crown tilted to the left,
Walking wobbly and unsure,
Even being a dangling participle;
People say what they say,
All you can do,
Is listen or not,
And then do what you do,
With your own punctuation.
