Comma Drama


The comma hangs on the line,

brings clarity to many a run on sentence,

helps with lists of people, places, and things.


Editors make it optional at times.


Poets rebel

Replace it with line


“It use to hang out with dialog,” they say,

“and separated the sayer from the said.”


Issa said

I take a nap

making the mountain water

pound the rice


Gauguin used question marks

Where do we come from?

What are we?

Where are we going?


Things are entirely what they appear to be

and behind them . . . there is nothing.   Sartre



Jesus said

Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
