When I go away from you The world beats dead Like a slackened drum. I call out for you against the jutted stars And shout into the ridges of the wind. Streets coming fast, One after the other, Wedge you away from me, And the lamps of the city wingspan my eyes So that I can no longer see your face. Why should I leave you, To wound myself upon the sharp edges of the night? Source: Lowell, Amy. “The Taxi.” Sword Blades and Poppy Seeds. New York: MacMillan Co., 1914. Google Books. Web. 29 June 2011. Which poetic techniques does Lowell use in the first three lines of this poem
