Because I do not hope to turn again

Desiring this man's gift and that man's scope
I no longer strive to strive towards such things
(Why should the aged eagle stretch its wings?)
Why should I mourn
The vanished power of the usual reign?

Heat Lightning
by Dave McCaul
Someone must be taking photographs outside
Unable to sleep, I part the curtains of my bedroom window
But my backyard is empty—no photographers lurking in the bushes
I gaze skyward and see that the culprits are up above, air-borne
An overeager paparazzi, their flash bulbs popping in quick succession
Heavenly bodies, dressed up for an all-night party, mug for the camera
Networks of lightning bring disparate gatherings together
Solar particles bump into one another
like people on a crowded dance floor
The thunderstorm is a strobe light
flashing on my bedroom wall
Distant music I cannot hear
keeps the party-goers moving
In my pajamas, I am like a rude guest, sloppily dressed
Hair mussed with static electricity, eyes dark-circled and tired
No sleeping tonight—this party isn't over until dawn.
Which lines from the poem show an example of a simile?
A. Heavenly bodies, dressed up for an all-night party, mug for the camera

'Twas Friday morn when we set sail,
And we had not got far from land,
When the Captain, he spied a lovely mermaid,
With a comb and a glass in her hand.
Oh the ocean waves may roll,
And the stormy winds may blow,
While we poor sailors go skipping aloft
And the land lubbers lay down below, below, below
And the land lubbers lay down below.
Then up spoke the Captain of our gallant ship,
And a jolly old Captain was he;
"I have a wife in Salem town,
But tonight a widow she will be."

I'll sing you a poem of a silly young king
Who played with the world at the end of a string,
But he only loved one single thing—
And that was just a peanut-butter sandwich.
His scepter and his royal gowns,
His regal throne and golden crowns
Were brown and sticky from the mounds
And drippings from each peanut-butter sandwich.

Silverstein

Better Batter
by c.safos
In between the beats and whirs,
the cake mixer twists its metal links
like the spin of a couple dancing.
I can smell the melted butter.
It smells like a carnival.
The mixing bowl is where sweet teeth go.
The batter is thick.
As it's poured, it clouds and clumps over
on itself like pillow lava.
If the batter were a dream,
it would take only an instant to bake.
The billowing scent would balloon
until the morning chimes,
clanging and clinking and ringing until
the cake is as full as the sun and twice as yellow.

Didn't fit...
A little too small -- just a bit
Too floppy.
Couldn't get used to it,
Took it off.

A little too loose.

Didn't feel right in 'em,
Kicked 'em off.
