Couplets and focus

Consider how the lines of this poem focus/control the reader’s attention/experience. At what rate does information arrive? Why? How do the lines end? How is enjambment used? When is it used? What gives the poem closure? What work does the title do? What is the persona like? Why do you think so? How and where does the persona change?

Consider the same questions of these couplets.
