Phone allusion

Would it be an allusion if I wrote " It was a small rectangular box with a symbol of an apple with a bite out of it. It also had a sheet of glass that would light up when you pushed a button at the top of it." Because i'm alluding to an apple phone?

Does this poem have any allusions ?

First time he kissed me, he but only kissed
The fingers of this hand wherewith I write,
And ever since it grew more clean and white,…
Slow to world-greetings…quick with its “Oh, list,”
When the angels speak. A ring of amethyst
I could not wear here plainer to my sight,
Than that first kiss. The second passed in height
The first, and sought the forehead, and half missed,
Half falling on the hair. O beyond meed!
That was the chrism of love, which love’s own crown,
With sanctifying sweetness, did precede.
The third, upon my lips, was folded down
In perfect, purple state! since when, indeed,
I have been proud and said, “My Love, my own.”

Answer to a Poem

The use of the word chrism alludes to a mixture of oils and fragrances used to anoint the baptismal candidate during Christian baptisms. It is said to bring joy and gladness into the life of the candidate.

*This is the only allusion I saw. There may be others.

no, you have to refer to

no, you have to refer to something commonly known like you can refer to line in movies or celebrities . for example in the song dark horse by Katy Perry she said in her song " I'm gonna eat your heart out like Jeffrey Dahmer " this is an allusion because Jeffrey is cannibal.

I wish she hadn't told me the story of the salamanders. I want to think it is her entering the world in a new shape. She told me that when she died, she wanted to be an animal in her new life.

no

Its a simile

Posted by Anonymous on Tue, 05/24/2016 - 01:20
It's not a simile

It is not a simile as there is no comparison to anything nor does it use words such as, "like" or "as". However, I am also unsure as to whether it is an example of allusion
