I am writing a paper on "On the Amtrak from boston to new york city" by sherman alexie. I need to detail how the poet used literary conventions and poetic devices such as meter, imagery, and symbolism to communicate the meaning of the poem. I have the imagery and symbolism parts but don't know about meter. I am not 100% confident on this part but way blown away on how it applies to the poem.
