    Pattiann Rogers mostly used alliteration and repetition throughout the poem.

    Alliteration: "salty slough holes", "entire expanse", "glittering grey", "single spotlight", "spume and spray", "life long", "proper praise",

    Repetition:

    "Of the sun went spinning and spinning and spinning"

    "Circling your silver case night after night after night"

    "Of your hinter body, by the unrelieved wonder / Of your black-pea eyes, by the unrelieved wonder"

    "Your name intact exactly, day after day after day."

    Rogers also uses a simile in comparing the crab to a worm.
