Sign Inventory (Week 10)

Kate Northrop's "The Film"

Come, let's go in.
The ticket-taker
has shyly grinned
and it's almost time,
Lovely One.
Let's go in.

The wind tonight's too wild.
The sky too deep,
too thin. Already it's time.
The lights have dimmed.
Come, Loveliest.
Let's go in.

and know those bodies
we do not have to own, passing
quietly as dreams , as snow.
Already leaves are falling
and music begins.
Lovely One,

It's time.
Let's go in.

-three full stanzas along with one mini stanza made up of two lines
-"let's go in" is repeated in the first, second, and fourth stanzas
-the first word of every beginning stanza is capitalized except for the third stanza
-questionable language: "and know those bodies/we do not have to own, passing/quietly as dreams, as snow./Already leaves are falling"
-significance put at the end of the poem:" It's time./Let's go in."
-20 lines
-enjambments throughout
