TYPE OF POEM

Her poems are mostly lyric cause they express her thoughts and feelings.

POEM EXAMPLE

She mostly sometimes write in simile EXAMPLE: driveway-swaying at the wheel like blind pianist caught in a tune meant for more than two hands playing.

WHAT THE AUTHOR MEANT

The author meant that when she was leaving out the driveway it was like the path was moving with her like inside a tune where two hands play. I chose this cause she wrote what she felt. I like best is that she just came out and said something random and wrote it down.

ELEMENTS OF POETRY

I found similes in her poems EX: The doors open like in the movies.

SENSORY LANGUAGE

The sensory language is sight because she says that the road looks like its moving.
