Wait a minute, i don't think ee cummings is lauding Picasso, look at the
5th stanza, he speaks of Picasso's large ego, read the poem again, i don't
think he likes Picasso

Este poema Picasso ele-mesmo. Palavras fora do lugar,na sintaxe, como os
olhos, os narizes, os seios, das figuras de Picasso. O poeta e.e.cummings,
escreveu Picasso.

Is or is not "Things" capitalized in the first line?

Will someone please find a physical book of his and confirm?

Thank you.

Please post answer here, as from internet site to internet site the way
this poem has been typed up is different, depending on the source.

a tribute to his fellow surrealist picasso. so many adjectives run together
to create a very real idea of what picasso has created. and picasso was not
an amiable man, o no. i think cummings realized this. but picasso certainly
was a brilliant artist just as cummings
