Sentence Eleven

Out of the Dust by Karen Hesse

Her sentence: Now he smells of dust and coffe, tobacco and cows.

My thoughts: I think the author used asyndeton to make the list seem unfinished, as if he smelled of a variety of things. Also, he placed random things that don't resemble beside eachother, maybe to create juxtaposition.

My sentence: She tasted eggs and corn, dirt and soap.
