dying is fine) but Death

I believe that what we are supposed to learn from this poem is that dying
is the beautiful, natural ending of life. The wondrous moment when the
spirit leaves the body, while Death is all about hospitals and flatlines,
lawyers and wills, morticians and embalming fluid, all the ways in which we
take nature out of dying.

I read this completely differently - didn't Cummings often (if not usually)
use the "petit mort" sense of death in his poetry? I don't think I'm
reading too much into this - between "?o/baby" and dying
"perfectly/putting/it mildly lively" versus Death "artificial &/evil &
legal", and "the sin of Death" - I took it as Cummings' irreverent but
heartfelt commentary on the role of sex in society. I don't mean to be
vulgar at all, I just thought that was a characteristic of Cummings' poetry
and automatically read it that way. The more literal interpretation makes
sense too, though, so now I'm not so sure. Does anyone have a link to
Cummings' own reading of the poem?
