Brooklyn Cop

Stanza 1: picture – time / place / person (setting)
Stanza 2 / 3/ 4 – conjecture (thoughts / assumptions based on a loose idea)
Latter stanzas are fragments / not whole & complete ideas like the opening. progression from picture of person – reflection on self / society.
Themes: proximity of violence. Fear. Love. Danger. Isolation. Society vs. Chaos. Anonymity.
Brooklyn Cop Setting, tough area, control, law & order, foreign
Built like a gorilla but less timid simile: size (huge) intelligence (pure wee) territorial, uncivilised, scary & intimidating, brooding menace, mysterious. provides contrast – can’t be so easily summed up. He will challenge you. thick-fleshed, steak-coloured hard-working, tough, tolerance, dark emotionally & literally – frightening & unknown. with two / hieroglyphs in his face that mean / trouble. Metaphor (which Nicolle said, like, ten minutes ago) puzzling / difficult to read / foreign & ancient language – interpreting signs / pictures / images. Poet analysing someone else’s symbols. Strange idea of cop – someone that is frightening.

he walks the sidewalk and the / thin tissue over violence contrast: hard, tough cop & delicate tissue. white tissue vs. dark cop. antithesis of light and dark. enjambment – literal on one line / metaphorical on next. Seeming impossibility of the metaphor – speaker fears that chaos is inevitable (cop will fall).

MacCaig employs enjambment in order to highlight the fragility of society. He tells us, “he walks the sidewalk and the / thin tissue over violence.” The literal, concrete sidewalk is balanced against the figurative, metaphorical “tissue”. On one line is an image we can see and understand, on the other is a notion – a philosophical concept. The sidewalk is tough, hard (like the cop) whereas the tissue (made more prominent by running it onto a new line) is delicate and hints…...

...Abby Merschman 8th Grade The Gift of Wisdom The gift of wisdom is what you would call a revelation gift. You have to receive this gift from God. The gift of wisdom comes from the Holy Spirit. Meaning, it is part of the Holy Spirit. I don’t think that you can earn these type of gifts by studying and learning, God grants this gift to you, but you can also ask. The gift of wisdom is sort of like the gift of knowledge, but different because knowledge is understanding a situation, circumstance, or even a plan from God. Wisdom is different; it is a gift from God, not a plan or circumstance of knowing something. Both are revelation gifts. I think wisdom is having a sense of direction, and being led by the Holy Spirit. When being led by the Holy Spirit, God gives you the wisdom to follow and learn. Would you accept this gift from God? Wisdom is one of the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit. It is available to all Christians, not just Catholics. Wisdom can also teach us to love our world. You must ask for this gift of wisdom. My confirmation definition for wisdom is: Wisdom helps us to see and understand god’s plan in our lives and in the world around us. Wisdom can be very helpful in our world because it can lead you to the right decisions and understand what God wants you to do with your life. I am not sure what I want to do with my life, but maybe if I ask God, then he will give me the gift of wisdom and I’ll know. Sources: Christ Centered mall.com...

I Want You

...I WANT YOU FOR THE U.S. ARMY!” Now, what would you do if someone were to ask you this? Or if you seen it out in town on a poster? Would you pay any attention to it or just walk on by? Most people would honestly just walk on by, unless, there was something in that particular poster that had caught their attention. Recruiting ads have changed over the years, but this one was popular. This particular recruiting advertisement was an effective argument because of their slogan, Uncle Sam, his stare, his point, and the use of America’s colors; red, white, and blue. I would say this particular recruiting image was for men or boys. Back then it were only the men or boys who could actually join the army. So, this poster excluded any women and girls because they were not allowed to join. The main targeted audience for this was for the younger men and boys, and for more than one reason. The younger they are, the more apt they are to be healthier. The army wants them to be younger because they can move more quickly and act upon things faster than someone who is older. They also want the men who don’t already have a family started because then they won’t have that worry while out in battle and can focus better on what they need to do. Where is the place where you see most advertisements for things? Out in town, right? This image was more than likely posted out in town on public buildings as well, that is where most of a town’s population goes for many different reasons. Having it out......

Why I Want to Be a Nurse

...I remember it like it was yesterday. The squeaky white floors, and how I had to stand on my “tippy toes” to see through the glass. In that room on the other side of the glass was what felt like hundreds of babies, new babies that had only been in this world for a so short of a time. I knew I wanted to be one of the “angels” caring for them. My sister was a preemie, born 9 weeks early, so the family spent a lot of time in the hospital with her. In the following weeks and months, I witnessed nurses staying not only at this tiny infant's side, but the family's also as she was hooked up to yet another tube. These nurses went above their required duties and cared for my sister and family not only physically, but emotionally and mentally. The nurses, far more than any doctor, were our support system. I, at that young age, would ask them my questions about what was to happen, and with patience and knowledge, they answered me with such care. Being such an intimate witness to the struggle of life and death left me with a deep sense of human fragility. I realized that the human body is so very intricate and beautiful in its complex delicacy. Witnessing a nurse's holistic role for the patient embedded deeper in me that I had a calling to serve others in the medical field, specifically in the field of children. Ecclesiastes 3:1 states that every endeavor man can undertake has its own time and meaning. Looking back on my own life, I see various experiences and opportunities of growth......

I Want a Wife

...Essay) JUDY BRADY I Want a Wife (1971) Judy Brady’s essay became an instant classic when it appeared in 1971 in the premier issue of the feminist magazine Ms. As you read, analyze the definitions of “husband” and “wife” that Brady uses, and consider why this essay became so powerful in the 1970s. I belong to that classification of people known as wives. I am A Wife. And, not altogether incidentally, I am a mother. Not too long ago a male friend of mine appeared on the scene fresh from a recent divorce. He had one child, who is, of course, with his ex-wife. He is looking for another wife. As I thought about him while I was ironing one evening, it suddenly occurred to me that I, too, would like to have a wife. Why do I want a wife? I would like to go back to school so that I can become economically independent, support myself, and, if need be, support those dependent upon me. I want a wife who will work and send me to school. And while I am going to school I want a wife to take care of my children. I want a wife to keep track of the children’s doctor and dentist appointments. And to keep track of mine, too. I want a wife to make sure my children eat properly and are kept clean. I want a wife who will wash the children’s clothes and keep them mended. I want a wife who is a good nurturant attendant to my children, who arranges for their schooling, makes sure that they have an adequate social life with their peers, takes them to the park, the zoo, etc. I want a wife who......

I Want You

...Since this seems to the preeminent center of college discussion online, I’d love to hear an honest and reasonable assessment of my likelihood of admission at the following schools: Duke, Princeton, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, Georgia Tech, University of VA Here’s everything I can offer in the way of information: I just began my senior year at Plant High School in Tampa, FL (a hyper-competitive public school). I’m a white male from a family reeling from the effects of our economic downturn (income drastically below $30,000/yr at this point) Though I’m still undecided concerning a major, I’m interested in eventually pursuing a career as an attorney. My top choices for a college major right now are economics, psychology, political science, or perhaps a branch of engineering (pending my experience with Calculus/Physics) My unweighted GPA stands at 4.0 (weighted 5.72, though I hear this is practically useless to the admissions office). I’ve taken the SAT I twice, with a superscore of 1530/1600, or 2300/2400 (Math-730, Reading-800, Writing-770). I’ve also taken 2 SAT IIs, Chemistry and US History, on which I scored a 760 and 800, respectively. On my Junior PSAT I scored a 207, and have been commended by the NMSQ. I have not taken the ACT. I’ve been in all honors courses, and additionally have completed 5 AP courses between my sophomore and junior years. Names and exam scores follow: World History-5 US History-5 Chemistry-5 Psychology-5 English Language and......

I Want Built a Company

...Haipeng Fu Analysis of the External Environment: I want to build a home decoration company in china. General Environment 1 Demographics: China has the most population in the world. There are 1.35404 billion people in my country. In my hometown Liaoyang city, the urban resident population is 1.824 million. This is a huge market. 2 Legal: A few years ago, Chinese government encouraged the real estate industry. The relevant laws and regulations provided convenience for this industry. At the same time, the related industry developing rapidly. But in recent years, the price of house is too high. The people cannot afford it. The government issued some policy to control the price. This indirectly affects the enthusiasm of real estate developers. It also indirectly affects the development of home decoration industry. 3 Sociocultural: China is a country with a long history. It has various traditional cultures. Especially the housing culture. There are so many elements of decorate a room appeared in Chinese 5000 years history river.

Before I Die I Want to

...Before I die I want to... Before I die I want to be able to do many things that I want to do but I will only highlight a few that I really would like to be able to focus on. One thing that I want to be able to do before I die is to be able to live happy and relaxed for a long period of time. Another thing that I would want to be able to do before I die is to travel to a few different countries or even states for example in particular South Korea and maybe London. Something else that I would want to be able to accomplish before I die is to be at the top position possible at a job in the IT field or some computer related position. Lastly before I die I would like to be able to live life without regrets. The reasoning behind me wanting to be able to live a happy and relaxed life is because ever since I got into high school I don’t think have been living constantly happy life, and I have defiantly not been able to be relaxed because I picked up a job that I almost work every day and have lots of things I have to constantly worry about especially now that I’m in college, and my grades really matter to me now and hoping that I will be able to do well in my classes. Another reason that I would want to live happily is because living happy can help your life span so If I continue on living stressed out and worried about things every day I feel like it can affect my health in the long term, I feel like being able to live worry free would be such a good feeling. I really......

I Want a Husband

...I Want a Husband Every woman wants what she thinks is the perfect husband. Not every woman wants the same thing in a man. Some women want a man who is a little rough or some want a man who is college educated. A few things all women can agree upon is we all want a man who is gives attention, committed, a good provider, great listener, educated, and handy around the house. That is just to name a few things us women want in a man. When I think of what the world says a good man is to me it is like they are looking for the perfect man. To me the perfect man cannot be found every man has there flaws. You just have to find the man with the flaws that you can deal with. Every good man is not college educated; but they know how to get up and go to work to make an honest living. To find a man that is educated is a good thing that means that they are on your level and can keep up with you. Education is important to every woman when it comes to finding a husband, because you know that their values are in the right place if going to school is important to them. What woman you know wants a man that is not committed to them. If a man cannot be committed you might as well say there is not a relationship. Woman want to know that they are the only one in a man's life. Women like to know the man is not out and about doing things that he should not do. When a man is turns into a husband commitment is important. No woman wants to find out that her man was not committed totally to......

Why I Want to Teach

...of image they want to imprint on their students. Growing up I have had many teachers, some have left good and bad experiences in my life that has ultimately brought me to where I am today. “John Dewey was possibly the most influential educator of the twentieth century and probably the most controversial one”(Sadker &Zittleman 2010). I believe in being a progressive teacher in that I want to see my students at any skill level continue to improve. As a progressive teacher I will have 3 main goals: to inspire, grow and groom individuality into each student under my care in the classroom. I will a teacher whose image will never be forgotten and whose tenacity for education is never questioned. I believe that, if possible, every child no matter the age or ethnic background should be treated as an Individual in the classroom. In my own personal experiences being a student I have seen how even in a college setting the connection a teacher or professor can have with a student one on one is much more satisfying than a teacher who just teaches a class. Education, according to John Dewey, is the “participation of the individual in the social consciousness of the race” (Dewey, 1897). As such, education should take into account that the student is a social being. The process begins at birth with the child unconsciously gaining knowledge and gradually developing their knowledge to share and partake in society. Furthermore, in my educative journey with my students I want them to be......

I Want to Do Better

... Want to do Better I will sing unto the Lord a new song, I will meditate on his word both day and night! We rise giving honor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, who is my strength and my redeemer! I am not going to worry you long this evening, but there is a word from the Lord ! I was asked to preach on “New Beginnings” and I asked the Lord to give me a word for his people going forward into the New Year,That would not only resonate in their minds, but also in their Hearts! I beleive that in order to start New,Something would have had..... to come..... to a Close! Meet me in the Apostle Paul's epistle to the church at Philippi, Philippians Chapter 2 beginning at verse one.Where you will find these words,If there be any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies, Fulfill ye my joy, that ye be like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through strife or vain glory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Verse 5 Reads.... Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus. It's me oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer! I come again asking that you would stand with me, put me down in the deep trenches of your word, let them see more of you, and a whole lot less of me, let the meditation...

I Want.............

... 5 Have you ever seen a U.S. bubble that is comparable to this one? There has never been a housing bubble in the US as big as this one, on a national scale. Perhaps some international bubbles have been as big. Vancouver Canada is going to implode like Florida did. Spain and the UK are huge problem areas right now. The bubble in Japan was arguably bigger and it took 18 years to unwind. What are the three biggest reasons why we ended up in this mess, and is there anything we can do to reverse the damage that has been done? We ended up in this mess because of bad policies from Congress, bad policies from this administration, and bad policies from the Fed, all compounded by consumer greed. That is a toxic mix. Starting with Congress we have had policies that encouraged housing via tax breaks. That is a violation of sound free market policies. We had the creation of Fannie Mae. There were 300 some odd programs to make housing affordable.Well, guess what happens when you go pushing houses on everyone and handing out tax breaks? Prices go up. The more programs that were created to make housing affordable the higher prices went. Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich went off the deep end with a program guaranteeing mortgage loans for illegal aliens. The peak of insanity was when Alphonso Jackson, Housing and Urban Development Secretary actually went so far as to send this message to private sub-prime lenders: 'I am absolutely emphatic about winning......

I Want to Live

...I Want To Live Life What do you think of when you hear the word marriage? When I hear that word, I think of two people so in love that they want to spend the rest of their lives together. They want to raise a family in a big house with a white picket fence and live happily ever after. Lets be real, statistics show that 40-50% of marriages will end in divorce. I don’t know about you, but those odds aren’t really in my favor. So when I look at it all there are just to many disadvantages to marriage. Getting married is such a hassle, why would anyone want to. You have to deal with wedding planners, flower arrangements, guest lists and etc. Theirs just to much to put into getting married your already stressing yourself out before you actually get into the marriage. Lets not forget about the things you have to give up. Such as, you aren’t able to take risks. The way I see it, life involves risks. Some that betters you off and some that bites you in the butt and set you back. From experience with me when I fall or get set back, I get up and take another risk and move on. I think taking risks are fine, as long as you’re the one who suffers from the setbacks. You can’t take those chances with another person’s life, health; money and future are in your hands. It would be a pretty selfish thing to do. To me marriage means your keeping the best interest of two people in mind at all times. Yeah, it might keep you from going to jail or other stupid moves, but it might also hold......
