"Hoods" by Paul B. Janeczko
Transcript of "Hoods" by Paul B. Janeczko
The only alliteration in this poem is in the last line where our speaker describes his or her escape as "death-defying." The sound of "d" twice in a row gives off a sound similar to the thumping of feet running on a sidewalk.
Big Idea- Theme
The theme of this poem is a high action chase. A lonely stranger witnesses a group of black leathered jacketed men, lead by Spider, trying to break into a car. What follows is the speaker's "death-defying escape." (l.36)
The speaker says the men in black leather jackets remind him of a flock of crows over roadkill.
These men are also compared to sinners at the door of a church when they pause before entering the Free Public Library our speaker hides in.
As a reader, I felt anticipation strongly. I imagined how striking it would be if suddenly these men started chasing after me, and followed me to the library. When Sider calls them off, however I felt a sense of relief.
This poem does not have an example of repetition.
This poem has no rhyme scheme, rhythm, or classification other than freestlye/freeform poetry.

I belive the tone of this poem is fearful and a bit boastful. It gives off a sense of fear when it talks about running away and hiding, but boastful when our speaker brags to "Raymond" about his death-defying escape.
