At The Door - Poem by David Wagoner

All actors look for them-the defining moments
When what a character does is what he is.
The script may say, He goes to the door

    Research Options Fields Apart

    well defined stimulus
    material is catalysis
    in raising questions...

    implying myriad possibilities
    when exiting chosen doors
    we close exit alternative routes...

    variant research choices
    fruitful lines further inquiries
    leading into other life fields...

    Good Poetry Need Not Rhyme

    I believe good poetry need not rhyme
    superior intensity may be obtained
    by omitting inferior overdone rhymes

    Decision Making Finale

    leave taking implies
    decision making finale
    from subtle to radical
    from trivial to incredible...

    with life implications
    set ranging throughout
    entire possible spectrums
    potent human experiences...

    doors swift
    slow opened closed
    defined...

    in consequence raising questions
    implying myriad possibilities
    when time entering exiting doors...

    If only this rhymed, then it would be good poetry! I like the paragraph that talks about pretending to see through the door and pretending that you dont need it. Speaks of independence and strength but yet gives all the options in the poem. The idea is good and relatable, but the beginning lacks substance to draw you in and the absence of rhyming puts it at a lower level than it deserves. (Report) Reply

    Interesting but I believe good poetry need not rhyme, superior intensity may be obtained omitting inferior overdone rhymes. Just my opinion :)
