    The great and enigmatic Brit poet Geoffrey Hill uses that mark a lot in his Orchards of Syon, a collection of poems known for their difficulty. Being the thief that most (self-titled) poets are, I adopted the practice for a series I wrote. It's a nice looking way to go from one thought to something completely different. What its actual purpose is I don't really know, though I glean it's some kind of mathematical symbol. I suck at math so I use it for my own purposes.

    It's got a lot of uses. But hasn't been used as a punctuation mark (outside poetry) since the middle ages.
