intensifying repetitions

Her phrases take you to another territory, then, instead of leaving you there, lurch you one step deeper:

"the train as small as a toy train crossing a toy bridge" (p. 4): it's a small train, in fact a toy train, and then you just can see it in its miniscularity crossing the toy bridge

"red polo riders riding red horses" (p. 2)
