    1. Personification: It is the process through which a poet gives an inanimate object a human trait. When the poet speaks to “solitude” as their companion in line twenty, we can see this literary trick in action.
    2. Allusion: It can be recognized when the poet refers to a topic unrelated to the text’s material. The poet refers to Buddhist meditation techniques and how, if one just doesn’t “try,” they can empty their mind of thoughts in the first few lines. But as the speaker strolls down Fifth Avenue, this happens to them.
    3. Repetition: “Can you see them in the pot” is repeated throughout the piece. This could be a complete line or stanza, a single word, a phrase, a formal feature, etc. For instance, the poet twice uses the term “don’t” in line 23.
    4. Enjambment: When the poet ends a line before it should end, this is known as enjambment. Take, for instance, the change between lines 35 and 36. Between lines 41 and 42, there is another illustration.
