Alliteration altercation;

onomatopoeia, whoosh, shush, cuckoo, haiku;

out of mind,

binding mind to time;

rhyme with rhythm,

rhythm-rhyme;

looking for the door to metaphor,

the simile

like a symbol

for the cymbal crashing;

meaning untamed teeming;

meter without master,

la marteau sans maître

complete freedom of the line:

ligne libre
