Think of these as tools that you're learning how to use. Play with them... make something. It doesn't have to be a complete poem, but it can be. The idea is to try your hand at something new. If simile and metahor aren't new to you, you could see this as a prompt. For instance, say "I am..." and insert a metaphor or simile instead of just a noun.

Someday when you're writing a poem that you really care about, I hope you'll have these nine and sixty ways to pick from and use. That's the big idea: to build skills. In the meantime, have fun. I'm having a lot of fun researching these. I'm learning too.
