Juxtaposition is similar to an oxymoron.


Juxtaposition is the contrast of two images, things, objects, etc. Basically it's like the comparison of two different things, put into a sentence e.g. the sun and the moon, day and night, etc.

I haven't read the poem you mentioned, but I hope this helps :)
