or
like
or as
or like
a simile
or metaphor
for run on rhyme
while onomatopoeia
doesn’t sound as it means
yet hyperbola looks like math
while hyperbole thinks as poetry
as
or
like
meter
repeats
so syntax
finds texture
for line lengths
to let poem breathe
as writer shapes stanzas
like fitting context, tone, and
page look marry content, like or as
