Open it

Open it

wrote this for my imaginative writing class. They never give any real feedback, just 'goodjobs' what do you think?

"

Coffee-colored wrappings

Consume his curious mind.

It could not be for him.

 

Open it.

 

But it doesn’t belong.

Not here, not to him.

 

Open it.

 

Overwhelming desire unfolds

As frantically clumsy fingers

Tear away the paper,

Cut through the tape.

 

Open it.

 

Pull back the flaps,

Sift through the peanuts,

Unroll the bubble wrap.

 

There it is.

 

It is not mesmerizing.

It is not doused in silver

Nor is it covered with flecks of gold.

 

It is not valuable

Or even worth having.

 

In fact, it is nothing,

Nothing at all

Good job!!!


Just kidding, that's not all of my review. It's a well-penned poem, and I like the way you build up the tension throughout it over what the package contains. The curiosity and apprehension were tangible, and I actually rather like how the ending falls flat. It highlights the disappointment of the subject at finding nothing after all of that apprehension and effort.

The only flaw I saw in this was that I think you meant mesmerizing, not memorizing. Great work, it's awesome to see new writing from you Kate.

I thought I would find a gift towards the end. Something meaningful or important to you, the author. Then I thought, oh my goodness is it a candy bar. I am all for it. Then to find that literally, curiosity killed the cat. Well done!
