Guess the rhyme device

I cannot rid you of your leer
In any way that's real,
Unless across the room I leap
And face from bone I peel.

He was a roustabout, a rake,
The spurner of her care.
She left the state, at any rate,
Herself from him to tear.


Both of these poems employ the same poetical device in the rhyme scheme. What is it?
