The vivid color of red indicates the severe effects that the city has on people. In earlier parts of the passage, there are “chicken bones and pork-chop bones” that are left along the curb. The image of bones combined with blood indicates that the city can both physically and mentally kill a person with its harsh conditions.

Vivid descriptions of the wind such as its’ “rattl[ing] the tops of garbage cans”, “dirt and dust and grime”, and “grit sting[ing] skins” create a sense of chaos that is common in the busy hustle of city life. The cold wind also “violent[ly] assault[s]” the residents of the city, allowing the reader to envision the truly excruciating and harrowing journey people in the urban setting must make regularly.

The wind finds “theater throwaways, announcements of dances and lodge meetings, the heavy waxed paper that loaves of bread had been wrapped in, the thinner waxed paper that enclosed sandwiches, old envelopes, newspapers.” This extensive list without the use of conjunctions speeds up the reading allowing a fast pace similar to the rapid attacks of the wind, enabling the reader to visualize the onslaught on the citizens. Lutie, however, cooperates with the wind, reading the sign swiftly: “three rooms, steam heat, parquet floors, respectable tenants.” Asyndeton in Lutie’s case shows how she skillfully works with the wind to study the hanging notice.
