  10. Green Corn Season. "the way tipped breasts swell like egg whites whipped twice their volume." Simile.

    Operation Wetback. The whole poem. Repetition of the word you.

    Turns at the Dance."Could there come a time when he would ask.." "She weighs his invitation to dance." Point of View

    Quality Poor. "Poor, a pink-collor ghetto of important titles." Symbolism.

    Quality Poor. "Scrubing toilets at 2 am" Imagery
