by e e cummings

since feeling
since feeling is first

who pays any attention

to the syntax of things

will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool

while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,

and kisses are a better fate

than wisdom

lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry

– the best gesture of my brain is less than

your eyelids’ flutter which says
we are for each other; then

laugh, leaning back in my arms

for life’s not a paragraph
And death i think is no parenthesis
