What separates this poem and most of E.E. Cummings work is how the spatial
arrangement of words creates a physical rhythm unlike other poems where
more metrical devices create rhythm. It makes the piece have a pace and a
cadence unlike any other, first slow then fast. Cummings also has a
remarkable talent for wordsmithing, "watersmooth-silver stallion" has an
enhanting ring to it like no other, further cementing poetry as a medium
further enjoyed when read aloud.

The overall tone of this poem is cynical, if not downright satirical. It is
playfully innocent in its nastiness. Cummings shows that no matter how
wonderful, or handsome, or skilled, or charming this iconic man was, Death
still came out on top. I think it is interesting how Buffalo Bills and
Mister Death line up at the beginning and the end. Cummings uses this
circular nature to tie the poem up.
Also, he uses the word defunct, which means that something is no longer
existing or performing its duties. I think it is a great synonym for dead
in context of the tone.
