M is for Metaphor

A metaphor is a figure of speech that makes a comparison between two non-similar things.


I originally created this post for C is for Catachresis, but I realized it wasn’t a good fit so put in the parking lot and now I’m repurposing it here.

Metaphorically Speaking

Life was death warmed over. A day-old tortilla in the making. No yeast to levin. A flat cola. No bubbles to tickle my nose. A topless muffin. Then you arrived. Like the yeast in my muffin-top. The pop in my cola. The cane in my coke. I’m high on you. Do I tickle your Elmo too?
