my mind begins to peking pierre broken floodings of white
pillars how light and laughing my mind is when all
the good folk have put out their bedroom candles and
the city is still wow That is solitary that's kind
of cool right Which of the following images help the
reader visualize games played in the city games played in
the city Sounds like a tv series with cougars Well
what do you think Here We got a whole bunch
of choices We're looking at night drifts Lynn's Well let's
see the poem here uses visual imagery to create pictures
in the reader's mind other than the title solitaire you
know is a solo card game There are two phrases
that make us think of games one is playing ball
seeing right there We're not making this up but uh
last this isn't an answer choice we've got to keep
looking the other reference to games is dice cups in
the pagan temples and like pagan meaning like there no
gods sort of but many gods But i read the
word well dicer used in all kinds of entertaining past
times from yeah see teo backgammon toe craft you know
so we don't need to know exactly what kind of
gambling was going on in the temples We just know
that the answer See their rot dice cups in pagan
temples that's the right answer and the others well they
all contribute to the poems vivid imagery but they don't
divert us with tales of gleeful games So that's it
The answer is c roll the dice baby snake eyes
