Here are the first 4 "rules"/parallels of 18 to flying that help you analyze a poem:
Taking a plane is the beginning of a journey. Consider your journey: What new understanding of life will you have once you finish/”return?”
Look at the title above all else. It’s mentioned first for a reason- It’s your place of “taking off,” or your place of departure.
Poems don’t have just one meaning. Just like natives in a land, there are diverse people you can meet. Get ready to meet a variety of “people.” And similarly, just like all people, there are a variety of interpretations.
Why did the poet or city planner divide his/her “city” that way? Look at how the lines are sectioned off like they are streets. Walk around like a tourist, finding various ways to get to the center of the city/poem.
