What makes your poems different from other people's?

It's very difficult to say what makes your own poems different because that's the way you work and you're very used to it but I think one thing I certainly do like to do a lot is to use a lot of echoes in the poems, lots of near-rhymes, not just the ordinary rhymes at the end of the lines. Things like tide and weed, gone and home, mind and sand. They don't rhyme exactly but they do make a little sound in your head. I do like to use those a lot.
