In the first poet , “She being Brand” by Ee Cummings is about a man and girlĀ having sex for the first time. The author uses metaphor of riding a car to explain how it was nice to ride the city with his partner. The tone of this scene can be during night time.

On the second poet, “Coming Home, Detroit, 1968” by Phillip Levine is about Detroit riot, and how city is burn down. And the author using a metaphor of readers riding a car and passing by the streets and observing whats happening to City of Detroit. It’s like readers isolating themselves fromĀ dangers.

For the next class I will bring my small Cadillac toy car. And I will the same setup lighting like todays class.

    The narrative of the ee cummings poem might suggest night time but the mood is not depressing or sad. the challenge is to use low key lighting and have it still be exuberant and upbeat.

    In the Levine poem, the car is a metaphor for how we the audience isolate ourselves from the misery of the people there. It is certainly dark or at least gray-“the color of iron.”
