colon

Wouldn't you know? I no sooner post a statement that I generally avoid punctuation in haiku and senryu, limiting myself to the all-purpose dash when necessary, than I find myself writing a senryu containing, in addition to a dash, what looks suspiciously like a colon doing just the sort of thing colons are supposed to do.
