Neither Snow Analysis

Author: poem of Billy Collins Type: poem Views: 8

Sponsored Links

When all of a sudden the city air filled with snow,

the distinguishable flakes

blowing sideways,

looked like krill

fleeing the maw of an advancing whale.

At least they looked that way to me

from the taxi window,

and since I happened to be sitting

that fading Sunday afternoon

in the very center of the universe,

who was in a better position

to say what looked like what,

which thing resembled some other?

Yes, it was a run of white plankton

borne down the Avenue of the Americas

in the stream of the wind,

phosphorescent against the weighty buildings.

Which made the taxi itself,

yellow and slow-moving,

a kind of undersea creature,

I thought as I wiped the fog from the glass,

and me one of its protruding eyes,

an eye on a stem

swiveling this way and that

monitoring one side of its world,

observing tons of water

tons of people

colored signs and lights

and now a wildly blowing race of snow.

He uses many literary devices. He uses a hyperbole in the Last few lines. hyperbole is an exaggeration used to bring more effect into the poem. "Tons of water, Tons of people."
