Making locomotive roses

November 1st, 2013 · No Comments

“If a poet is anybody,he is somebody to whom things matter very little—somebody who is obsessed by Making.     Like all obsessions,the Making obsession has disadvantages;for instance,my only interest in making money would be to make it.     Fortunately,however,I should prefer to make almost anything else,including locomotives and roses.     It is with roses and locomotives(not to mention acrobats Spring electricity Coney Island the 4th of July the eyes of mice and Niagra Falls)that my ‘poems’ are competing.” – E.E. Cummings, is 5 (punctuation and spacing as in original)
