Transcript of my ceremony for talking

literary device: simile
Incident in a rose garden
literary device: hyperbole

lines 12-16 My parents split, and I felt
absolutely halved, though what was left of me was unclear. I needed a ceremony. It had to require pain,a sacrifice. It had to be missed.

hyperbole is a obvious and intentional exaggeration. the author overexercises her parents separation by saying she felt halved. by overexerting her being halved it lets the reader know how hurt she was by their separation. poets use hyperbole to over stress a point to the reader to let them know how they feel or there point. when parents split it can be very hurtful for their kids and may have life time affects on children as they grow to be adults, this is way if you don't love someone completely or you dont desire kids just don't have them in the first place.

A poison tree

his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream
his wings are clipped and his feet are tied
so he opens his throat to sing

literary device: metaphor
literary device: repertition
literary device: refrain

lines: throwout the song:
you would never know; if you could ever be; if you never try; you would never see; stayed in africa; we aint never leave; so there wasnt no slave ships in our history; were no misery, call me crazy, or isnt he; see i fell asleep and i had a dream, it was all black everything.
