Coincidentally both pieces seem to be missing a plot. Plot is defined as "a dynamic elements in fiction, a sequence of interrelated, conflicting actions and events that typically build to a climax and bring about a resolution"(Clugston, 2010).

He only chose the path because no one had walked on it.In the end he states, "I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference"(Frost, 1916), which meant that ultimately, he was happy with the decision. "I Used to Live Here Once" ends with one line, although there is a climax. "That was the first time she knew "(Rhys, 1976). Although it pushes the boundaries of the plot, it doesn't offer a resolution.
