Seeing Semi Colons

Call it fate.  I was trying to do nothing, think nothing, feel nothing…when I read something, which in turn created pictures in my brain. This ridiculous in response to a recent post by a friend of mine.  Her submission explored the proper use of the Semicolon, but then…..I’m not really interested in rules, needed as they may be.  OH, and don’t get me started on … (dot, dot, dot).

Here goes wordplay…

semi C

Excuse me, I’m sitting on this picture.

I’ve half digested it. Uh huh.

Connect the dots you’ll find a very

nice well postured, eagerly attentive

armless body

Oh, spot snot!

a colon grew a DNA tail


one and one half comma

Very well.

“A chap,” says Lincoln


You bruised me

with a bendy ruler slap

EZ, How bouts

a recess door for lunchtime lineup


a boxing glove, a punch too high


Get off that fence!

a midday pause to nap by kitty….catnip?

Try this

a birds eye view, poop target

Mousekateers, WATCH OUT! A hit!

an aerial Lincoln stovepipe hat…times two

Ewwww      icky

dot and curly que


Who knew?

smoke up one’s _______ (stove pipe)

Do you believe?

Not quite a question…

Oh, me.  Really?

a chocolate chip heist under stress

just ONE small taste!!!!

No? YES!


Broken, braking, peel out….leaky ballpoint pen

a talkshow vole next to a nightside project den

…if not, thennnnnn….


When did this happen to me?

I just don’t know when

this strange, peculiar sense of seeing, making such nonsense began

for losing most respect for people, rules and writing forms

has brought me theeeeeeese,

visions, quirks




I just dunno

I’ll let you in when I’m released


I am safe and out of reach from muse and mind grip

when I am safely boarded..bound for transit


from this Siberian manhole

to my own wet Fox 13  foxhole

’til then I’m still deciding

’til then, don’t be an ____________

don’t be an

ancillary critic,


don’t be so……anxious

Quit it.

Just need a minute


Yes, please. Do vote and take a sticker

here in chads and registeries

here in the ink

in spotting and in….. And-ing

Okay, on second thought

Don’t wait,

I’m spending time on Semicolon

slapstick phat

It’s fate.
