I read somewhere the cummings doesn't like to have his poems interpreted too heavily.. For me, etcetra suggest that everything is just inconsequential, everyone is blabbering about what the war is supposed to be, and all he can think about is daydreaming about "your etcetra"
Its kind of a sweet innocent poem.. there is a war going on and all but he is just a teenager... all he is thinking about is his girl and how his family is a constant nuisance.

the soldier is in the middle of combat dying and etcetra is every time the soldier starts to pass out from dying hence the subject change
from United States
