"skillfully curled" strikes me as a prescient observation about reality
that currently figures into the thinking of quantum cosmology.

"skillfully curled" gives me the feeling of comfort, of coziness- it makes
me think of a cat curled up in the sun- maybe it means how people who love
each other skillfully interwine themselves physically and abstractly, in a
way that brings them a feeling of comfort. and the world of yes is the
place of faith that enables such skillful curling

I think "skillfully curled" implyies that all the worlds combine to make up
a big place,love.

If I may use a quote from the movie Moulin Rouge "the greatest thing we'll
ever learn is just to love and be loved in return". I think the first part
of Cumming's poem captures this idea that basically love is the essence of
life and being, everything else is secondary. All places (or events
perhaps) transpire from our desire for love. Brightness of peace may infer
how crystal clear this mission in life is once one knows what they are
looking for.

Yes is a positive word from my point of view - but I'm not entirely sure I
understand the second verse, I mean what does "skillfully curled" imply???

I find it interesting how cummings miss spells words and replaces words
with others to create a deeper meaning. I was wondering what other people
think cumings was trying to say with this poem?
