Look out. Poetry is dynamite sometimes; it is not a trifle, not meant to be mocked. I'm still recovering from this one. What would Tim Butler say?

i say that you can never tease me for loving e e cummings ever ever again


as for the poem itself, i agree with jamie -- this not simply eros but also agape (especially when i'm reminded of c s lewis' writing on the topic)

e.e. cummings is a truly amazing poet -- one of the few 20th century poets really worth the title of poet, and one of an even smaller company of poets that actually managed to play with typesetting to good effect.
