E.E. Cummings (October 14, 1894 – September 3, 1962)



my mind is...(XXV)
my mind is
a big hunk of irrevocable nothing which touch and taste and smell 
and hearing and sight keep hitting and chipping with sharp fatal 
tools
in an agony of sensual chisels i perform squirms of chrome and ex
-ecute strides of cobalt
nevertheless i
feel that i cleverly am being altered that i slightly am becoming 
something a little different, in fact
myself
Hereupon helpless i utter lilac shrieks and scarlet bellowings.
                             ~e.e. cummings
