edward estlin cummings

from 'viva' and 'ectetera'...



i love this sentiment, of feeling like a completely different 
being now that you are in love..you don't recognise yourself 




this was one of the very first poems of his that i read..
still beautiful almost a decade on




he's often so humble and there's this utter adoration and feeling of 
not being worthy towards his amorous subject




a great poem for any wonderful mother..i concur!




i am fond of a good cigarette reference...

(i don't think i have them, i guess i ought to start building my collection
he doesn't turn up second-hand very often
or ever)
