    1. Out of the acids of rage

      Throughout the piece there are all of these very dark and sharp images that are easy and sometimes disturbing to picture and imagine. This description is the most vivid one to me from the piece, because I can imagine the anger exuded by the Lion growing inside of him and spreading to others, like a chemical acid would spread when released in the air.

    2. From the oak turned to a wall, they Lion,

      The "they Lion" stood out to me the most in this part, because the two words are put between two commas, and are at the end of a line instead of the beginning of a line. I think this adds to emphasize the two words more, and helps to mix up the repetition since it's near the end of the piece.
