Poem Response

The poem “she being Brand” has a very intense feeling. While reading, it feels like things change very quickly. It uses driving a car through the city as a description of a sexual experience. In contrast to that though, the poem “Coming Home, Detroit, 1968” uses driving through the city to describe what the Detroit riots are doing to the city. It also uses these features to create a visual depiction of how you would see all these things but then still ignore it all.

The only ideas i can come up with for cars are to use very harsh lighting to incorporate a sense of beauty, and perhaps some damaged looking props to depict detroit.
