it seems to me that the juxtapostion of the sentance structior is symbolic
of the opressed as they have less and less room to say anything, even in
the title, it is cut off mid-sentence

you all seemed to think it was political socio-economic commentary. i see
it more as him feeling different than these people, than all people, they
seem luckier and happier. his spirit is crumpled, he's talking to no one,
he thinks no one is there, but he hopes somehow someone will hear him. i
don't think e.e. cummings was political. if i'm wrong, and i'm missing
something, let me know, but i think mostly he felt alienated and saddened
at the state of humanity. he certainly made many social commentaries, but
that's not necessarily political.

Who listens to the men and women who are reduced to smoking discarded
cigarette butts? Society tars them all with the same brush, and never takes
the time to differentiate between those who have sunk so far into the mire
that they will not return, and those who seek compassion and a chance for
contact with humanity. I am, however, puzzled by the 3rd stanza - others
fly,their;puLLing:bright futures - I don't understand the use of the
punctuation, nor the capitalisation of 'LL' - assume it is a reference that
I don't recognise. It fascinates me how a few words can write a whole life
story like this.
