This surreal love poem has great imagery
Debate Rounds (3)
if you dont read the poem then it is pointless debating
breasts rounded like ripe fruit bring me thy buttocks round like these dunes that shimmer in glittering light oh come beloved bring thy breasts soft like twin hills of rose pink petals
flower petals of translucent fire like dry yellow straw am I consumed in fiery light my lips desire my limbs desire the groin of I burns like a red kiln of fire ripples of roses flashing burning flames of transparent yellow light exfoliate along the flesh of I
so I ask
do you think this line is full of great surreal imagery
"ripples of roses flashing burning flames of transparent yellow light exfoliate along the flesh of I
My opponent has the BoP in showing that the referenced poem has "great" imagery. If I can show that my opponent has not fulfilled the burden, I win the debate.
Some definitions of "great", from http://dictionary.reference.com... :
1. unusually or comparatively large in size or dimensions.
2. large in number; numerous.
3. unusual or considerable in degree, power, intensity, etc.
4. wonderful; first-rate; very good.
5. being such in an extreme or notable degree.
Unless my opponent can supply proof that the poem's imagery fits at least one of these definitions, the resolution is negated.
Good luck, Pro.
con admits he found the line cool Thus he loses by admitting that he thinks the imagery is cool
""I will start by saying that, yes, I have read the poem, and I do think that line is kind of cool. However, that's irrelevant to the debate. I am not going to concede the debate without argument."
I thank con for his honesty -even though it meant that he lose the debate
Pro seems to thinks that "cool" = "great", but gives no evidence or definition that proves such an assertion.
Pro has given no arguments to support his resolution that the imagery contained in the poem is great, so I have nothing to rebut
Off the Record: Pro, if all you really want is to have your poem critiqued and reviewed, I suggest you try a poetry or creative writing community, such as allpoetry.com. Or, at least, try the forums.
