Pause Poem

The sound of this poem is interesting in that sometimes one person is speaking, sometimes two, three, or even all of them. In the beginning, when Lillian says something that Paul said to her, they both spoke at the same time, which was really neat. When they all speak, it creates drama in the poem and is cool to see how they are all in sync, even down to the hand movements. Every time they say the word "pause", it is a transition of thoughts. The thoughts are things that they notice with different tragedies or inequalities in the world, and how each time they hear about these things they pause. This poem has great movement and flow, and it is very easy to get into. The repetition helps the flow of the poem and is the most prominent literary device in it.
