Reusing Yesterday’s Punctuation

‘ – .
. . “!” .
, . . . . , .
‘ . . :: .

In a distant world

‘ .
” , ,” . “.”
. ” ,” . , ‘ .
, , ” .
, . . ‘ . ‘ . — . ! .
‘ . ‘ . ‘ . ‘ , , ‘, .
. , , “!”
, ” !”

There is only punctuation.

‘ , , ‘ .
“!” , . ” !”
. ‘ . . .
. , .
“!” .
.

People have to infer their existence

” ‘ ?” .
.
“, !” . ” ? . , ‘ .”
.
, ! ! !
.

from the idea that sentences have subjects.

” ,” . ” ‘ . .”
, ” ‘ , .”
“‘ ,” . ” . !”
‘ ‘ . ‘ . . , , . ‘ . ‘ .
.
” , .”

And they think that they are made in the image of God

“!” . . ” !”
. . ‘ . ‘ ‘ .
. .
” ,” .
, ” .”
. . . ‘ , ‘ , ‘ .
. . .

—not His skin, not His bones, not His hair,

” ‘ ,” .
.
. . . , , ‘ .
‘ , ‘ . .
“!” .
, .
” ‘ ,” .
“, ‘ .”

but the colon of God

, . ” ,” . “, . . .”
.
” ,” , .
” ,” .

the comma of God

. . “, ‘ , . ‘ , ?”
. ” . .”
.
‘ . ‘ ‘ .
, “.”

the exclamation point

” !” . . .
“,” . .
. . .
“,” . “‘ !”

that is God’s heart.

. , .
“!” , .
.

Silly punctuation people!

. . .
“!” .
. .
” ?” .
“‘ , . .”

That’s not what God is at all!

. . ” , , -!”
‘ , .
” ?” .
.

Still, it is good, I think,

” ,” . “, ? ‘ . . . ?”
“?”
” .”

even if they are wrong

“,” . “, .”

, . , .

“,” , “‘ .”

that they are vain.

  1. In any other context, the phrase “the colon of God” would be intensely unsettling.

    Oh, I doubt the twitch that occurs before you realize that “colon” in this context means “two vertically aligned dots” is unintentional. And I think it adds a great deal to the story.
