After reading “To converse with great things’’ by Vera Palvola, I feel that the poem gives purpose to actions that have no ending. Such as a clock ticking, and “conversing with great things,” when in reality, great things keep on going. This also brings up another point. The poem seems to end all of a sudden, almost as if resembling what the poem gives purpose to. Overall, this poem is very interesting, and gives the reader an interesting look on making actions a part of you.

After reading “Harness Boredom in the Age of Coronavirus” by Elan Cohen, it is clear that people shared the same feeling of boredom during Covid. Now I cannot speak for everyone about having the same feeling of boredom, but if I can relate with Elan Cohen, then there must be others too. Elan Cohen draws the reader in with similar feelings that the reader can relate to. With this style of writing, Cohen is able to open your mind up to new things. Things that will guide you to trying “new.” Having the feeling of boredom gives the person the ability to allow for their minds to guide them to a new sensation that will defeat this feeling of boredom.
