at first....i thought he disliked picasso...but...the J.T. Parreira got it right.....his writing..and picassos painting is the same...everything is like...out of place......and u can also note in the end...when he says..."bodies lopped of every prettiness" you might think its bad....but then..he ends saying..."you hew form truly"...so..he...admires Picasso...for..remaining "true" to things

no, ee cummings was an ardent picasso fan; he was a mostly cubist artist and poet, so there's no reason to think that he didn't admire the father of cubism (with respect to braque.) he was also heavily influenced by gertrude stein, who compiled a veritable cubist gallery complete with picasso originals. the "ego" is likely a freud reference.
