Both Ginsberg and Eliot use the empty streets and darkness because of the feeling of loneliness it brings to people. In “The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock,” Eliot says, in lines 8-9, “Streets that follow like a tedious argument of insidious intent” and in “A Supermarket in California,” Ginsberg says, “for I walked down the side streets under the trees with a headache self-conscious looking at the full moon” (line 1-2).

No one was smiling, no one could. The sunny welcoming summer mornings had gone; leaving behind a deep sense of nostalgia floating amongst the dying remnants of warm summer days.
In the first line “They” refers back to her aunts and shows how they must send her items from her native culture because she is too far away to visit and is becoming detached from her Pakistani culture by living and growing up in England. The clothing items being discussed allude to a representation of a young girl coming into her teens “My aunts chose an apple-green sari…for my teens.” (14) This poem could serve as an autobiographical poem for the way in which Alvi felt as she grew up and may have been a method of getting in touch with her background. In the notes on the author in our class text, “Anthology of Twentieth-Century British and Irish Poetry” by Keith Tuma, her country of birth is described by Alvi as existing “…partly as fantasy, as a country she can “prise” off a map, and also partly as an identity produced for her by others.”
