Suppose personifies life as an old drunkard selling flowers by a cafe where
a young careless death sits. Cummings father died in a haphazard way - and
so in many of his poems he shows how life is being wasted away. The flowers
symbolize time, and how death always has money to buy it away from us.
(This is also explained in the last line where a slender flower looking
'afterwards' is sitting by death.
