I don't understand all of Cummings writing, but this piece speaks to me
because it is so real. It is a scene that has been played out for
generations and generations and I still don't think that it has all of the
recognition it deserves.

This poem rocks. It got me laid with four different women in three
different decades. I owe cummings a bottle of the finest single malt

A beauty! cummings is telling us that we are always constantly being
exposed to changes therefore nothing remains static or conventional. This
is evident through his theme and style of writing. He talks about an issue
that was a taboo(sex) some centuries ago and he uses an unconventional
style of writing(lower case). Our thinking has been a result of
indoctrination in the sense that we believed what our parents and
grandparents said about there being a 'universal standard'for everything.
Even to this day, sex is an 'untalked' issue in a lot of counties despite
the fact it is so natural and real. In a similar manner, as little kids we
were led to believe that capitalisation was necessary to begin sentences
and so forth. Through this poem we are compelled to question our beliefs
and why we must we adhere to 'universal standards' if there aren't
justifications for them.
