Like the Polish born French poet Guillaume Apollinaire, e.e. cummings
understood and embraced the visual media of the era led by Charlie Chaplin
and other silent movie stars.
His words rely on simpleness, but his poem structure tells another
message. I dare not say what the image looks like. Let's keep it simple and
enjoy the melodic beauty of the words woven letter by letter, stitch by

A little crazy is the poem
Supported upright in its actions
Even though the solemn
Thoughts were the attractions.

Does this make sense?
Neither does the crazy poem juat above
Who can descipher its hidden meaning??
