A Sonnet by the Dots – The Daily Post

By the Dots

I play by the dots, connect them, throw them
at the walls to see what sticks. Drop them out
the window to see if they bounce, cut them,
twist ’em round, stretch ’till they break, wring them out,
shoot out their holes, fling them into outer
space to see if they’ll orbit or break out–
but they fall meteorite bright booster
rocket broken to land smack dab center
of my prose and punctuate my rambling
woes–how dare you add exclamation points,
periods, commas, colons– you bumbling
dots quit fumbling my meaning, appoint
another task for that damn question mark
it’s got no business playing a landmark!
