This is created in large part by the oily sounds themselves. When spoken out- loud the diphthong [oi] in oil creates a diffusion of sound around the mouth that physically spreads the oil sound around the passage. An interesting seepage can also be clearly seen when looking specifically at the words "oil-soaked", "oil-permeated" and "grease-impregnated". These words connect the [oi] in oily with the word following it and heighten the spreading of the ...

... and relaying the emotions of the spectators with language and several metaphors, the poem gains a realistic and sometimes transcendent effect. In some places in the poem, the words can easily be taken literally to convey scenery or an emotion, but they can also be taken so as to make the reader think about possible higher meanings. The thoughtsexpressed in the poem help to suggest these other meanings by clearly stating what is being felt by the speaker and the crowd around the accident. By stating clearly and vividly the emotions of the scene, it is easy for the reader to identify the theme itself, and also to ide ...

... of the poem. McAvley uses the theme of this poem to suggest the tone, which shifts from excitement in the first two stanzas to detached cynicism in the last three stanzas. The tone of excitement is depicted by "the silent waiting merry-go-round invites" and by describing the riders as "eager" leaning in "intent, lips parted" with their "brief smiles float towards the watching crowd".
