Not a great deal. Poetry has rhythm, and so it does not generally need much punctuation. Prose has no rhythm, and so it needs punctuation. Any "poetry"burdened with punctuation, especially periods in the middle of lines, is most likely plain ol' prose pretending to be verse by spreading out in absur…d lines and pseudostanzas on the page, instead of honestly retaining the structure of blunt paragraphs it is actually made of.

While much contemporary poetry favors meter-less constructions andother "free-verse" devices, there remains a case to be made infavor of using meter in an intentional, even rigorous, way whencomposing poetry.

I have done the research. Syncopation is used by poets like James Dickey. Prime example is "Sheep Boy" in which there are two separate voices intermingled to tell the same narrative. The same thing can be seen in "Falling" where the voices are intermingled, one being the author the other the steward…ess falling through space. Syncopation done right eventually brings unity of theme through the voices and their point of view may remain isolated. . (MORE)

yes . it saids that .. Most figures of speech cast up a picture in your mind. These pictures created or suggested by the poet are called 'images'. To participate fully in the world of poem, we must understand how the poet uses image to convey more than what is actually said or literally meant. W…e speak of the pictures evoked in a poem as 'imagery'. Imagery refers to the "pictures" which we perceive with our mind's eyes, ears, nose, tongue, skin, and through which we experience the "duplicate world" created by poetic language. Imagery evokes the meaning and truth of human experiences not in abstract terms, as in philosophy, but in more perceptible and tangible forms. This is a device by which the poet makes his meaning strong, clear and sure. The poet uses sound words and words of color and touch in addition to figures of speech. As well, concrete details that appeal to the reader's senses are used to build up images. (MORE)

"Verse", the individual line format of poems, is used most often in poetry. In fact, if the work is not in verse format, it isn't even poetry. One problem with this answer though is that it is a tautology. It is like saying "poetry is used most often in poetry." Not very helpful. So another answer c…ould be "meter." Meter is the rhythmic inflection of stressed and unstressed syllables of the words in each line of verse. Not all poetry has meter though. Some poems have lines written without a specific metric format. This is called "free verse." Note that even lines of a poem that have no meter are still called "verse." "Rhyme schemes" are a distant third. Poems need not rhyme to be considered poetry. (MORE)

Oh yes, metaphors are used quite often in poetry. A good metaphor is poetic. Next to rhyme and meter, there is nothing more typical of poetry than metaphor.
