In the poem “she being brand” by e.e. cummings is more a pleasure/ sex poem between the writer and the car and in the poem “coming home, Detroit, 1968” by Phillip Levine, show more of a dark, gloomy poem. While both writers are in the car driving, both writers are having  different experiences in their day.

“Just as we turned the corner of Divinity

avenue i touch the accelerator and give

her the juice, good”

In this part of the poem it shows that the writer is really enjoying his ride in his car. Rather than in “coming home, Detroit,1968”  “We burn this city everyday.”
