I was given this assigment, kind of a nonsence poem. Here is the list:

Recipe Writing

1. Begin the poem with a metaphor.
2. Say something specific but utterly preposterous.
3. Use at least one image for each of the five sense, either in succession or scattered randomly throughout the poem.
4. Use one example of synesthesia (mixing the senses--see the example in the lecture this week).
5. Use the proper name of a person and the proper name of a place.
6. Contradict something you said earlier in the poem.
7. Change direction in the poem--digress from the last thing you said.
8. Use a word (slang?) that you've never heard in a poem before.
9. Use an example of false cause/effect logic.
10. Use a piece of "borrowed talk"; that is, eavesdrop on some people, write down a sentence or fragment of a sentence that they say (out of context--it's best if you don't know what they're talking about) and use it in the poem.
11. Create a metaphor using the following construction: "The (adjective) (concrete noun) of (abstract noun)..."
12. Use an image in such a way as to reverse its usual connotation.
13. Make the persona or characters in the poem do something he/she/they could not do in real life.
14. Refer to yourself in the third person and using a nickname.
15. Write in the future tense, such that part of the poem seems to be a prediction.
16. Modify a noun with an unlikely adjective.
17. Make a declarative assertion that sounds convincing but ultimately makes no sense.
18. Use a phrase from a language other than English.
19. Make a non-human object say or do something human. (Personify something.)
20. Close the poem with a vivid image that makes no new statement, but "echoes" an image from earlier in the poem.

Here is what I wrote. Would you please check my answers, and those with the three stars next to them I had difficulty with. Thank you so much for your help. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Did you have to do everything in the order given or just through the poem? IT would be easier if not in order. Anyway, working through the requirements you seem to have met them (in my humble opinion that is) apart from the comments below. This was a difficult assignment and you have done well!

1. Begin the poem with a metaphor. - you have used a simile not a metaphor.
2. Say something specific but utterly preposterous.
3. Use at least one image for each of the five sense, either in succession or scattered randomly throughout the poem.
4. Use one example of synesthesia (mixing the senses--see the example in the lecture this week).- this is not synesthesia.
5. Use the proper name of a person and the proper name of a place. Still use titles not tittles.
6. Contradict something you said earlier in the poem.
7. Change direction in the poem--digress from the last thing you said.
8. Use a word (slang?) that you've never heard in a poem before.
9. Use an example of false cause/effect logic.
10. Use a piece of "borrowed talk"; that is, eavesdrop on some people, write down a sentence or fragment of a sentence that they say (out of context--it's best if you don't know what they're talking about) and use it in the poem.
11. Create a metaphor using the following construction: "The (adjective) (concrete noun) of (abstract noun)..." Don't think this works
12. Use an image in such a way as to reverse its usual connotation. Not sure about this line.
13. Make the persona or characters in the poem do something he/she/they could not do in real life.
14. Refer to yourself in the third person and using a nickname.
15. Write in the future tense, such that part of the poem seems to be a prediction.
16. Modify a noun with an unlikely adjective. a pimple shaped bump is not unlikely.
17. Make a declarative assertion that sounds convincing but ultimately makes no sense.
18. Use a phrase from a language other than English.
19. Make a non-human object say or do something human. (Personify something.) Its not it's
20. Close the poem with a vivid image that makes no new statement, but "echoes" an image from earlier in the poem.

Yes, I had to do everything in that order. I don't understand what you did. The poem I did is the second one, unless this applies to my poem. Are the ones in red the only ones I need to correct, and the rest are good?

Thank you for your help
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I really don't understand what you did. I feel more confused. I will make some changes, and see if I understood you.

By the way, how do I get an av in my profile?

Thanks again.
