My poems typically consist of simple language, though I try to incorporate as much figurative language as possible. I am a fan of using similies in poems. I would describe my writing as more Americanesque, like Denise Duhamel's work, compared to late 19th century European writers. The endings to my poems are slightly ambiguous and philosophical, which could be good and bad at the same time. My endings are something I'm trying to work on. One of my biggest challenges at the beginning of the quarter was trying not to rhyme in my poems. That's something I have worked on and I certainly don't rhyme in all of my poems.
