"Ellipses...they are not commas...
 They are not periods...full stops...or pauses...
 Nor are they semicolons...though doubtful you know how to place one...
 Neither are they two dots...but always three...
 The triplets of punctuation...ellipses...
 Breathe in your mind...and not on the page...
 Their constant abuse at your pale hands...makes my interest trail...
 Off into infinity...like the ellipses..."

Bonus quote because when I saw it I couldn't resist putting these two together:
