Don’t overdo prepositions, adjectives, and adverbs.
Use action verbs, not “to be” verbs
Help the reader interact with the poem.
Help the reader relate by focusing on particular objects, not generalizing a type of object (whether the object is physical, mental, or spiritual).
Find unusual subject matter — a teapot, a shelf, a wall
