when i read this i feel like there is always hope for true freedom despite
the unhopeful and unrelenting onslaught and destruction of all things free
by "this busy monster manunkind"

but then i feel angry and want to destroy something, something cement or
internally combusting.

I love the last line of this poem -- it's one of my two favorites of
cummings'.
He has these little jewels scattered throughout his poems.

dalí comes to mind... a surreal painting inside the mind. and yet somehow
more beautiful than dalí, more optimistic, joyful.
