Poetry in Motion – To the night out by LYFT!

To the night out~LYFT!

Before reading the poem my attention goes straight to the highlighted sentences and the eleven words that are not. It is clear from the start without reading that the poem wants to convey a message, which is represented by the eleven words not highlighted. When I began to read the poem I began to smirk because of how relatable I found it to be. The poem talks about a night out and the struggles that occur with the transport from your location to the next. The poem implies that the subject is a woman on her night out, many women can relate because they have had some sort of experience as such. I can relate, on the weekend I go out with friends and we often dress up not particularly in favor of the weather or our feet. When I go out I always depend on some sort of taxi so that my feet don’t blister and I am much safer.

What I also realized is that this poem doesn’t have verses and the last line “That feeling that you should have taken a¬†Lyft!”,make the audience remembers the service being offered through the poem. All of the obstacles¬†the subject faced on a night out allows the readers to be persuaded to take Lyft on a night out. So they don’t have to experience¬†the long walks in heels or the long wait for the train. It is relatable¬†on purpose so that readers attention is easily¬†captured.

    Hey Kenisha,
    Great post I loved the poem and I found it very relatable as a young women growing up in New York city going out on these beat up streets and trying to be cute. Yes Lyft definetly got their message across with this one. The color scheme of the graphics red, black, and white, but mostly red stands out. The thing that also got my attention was the eleven words that were not highlighted wih color ” To the night out in your time saving always express Lyft. That statement speaks for itself. Lyft is letting their consumer know that their is no better alternative to traveling than the convenience of a Lyft. Thou the poem is not very long it is direct and straight to the point. I agree with your analysis of the poem 100%. Grat Job.
