Does meaning dwell in punctuation?

Punctuation imparts meaning, so the sentence says. A nifty container for sentence as well as phrase and fragment, a poem is a vehicle for perceived punctuation. Line break, extra spaces, stanzas, placement of words on page choreograph sound.

The larger issue being, language dwells in possibility called breath.

Now, of food! Sorbet cleanses the palate. Which food is most like a question?

    in the moss (beaten)

    hall way

    a fragment of crystal

    by the lake

    What about her kicked-out sister who loved ice cream?
