e.e. cummings was a genius
now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened
it's so damn sweet when Anybody—
…makes you feel
Almost anybody can learn to think or believe or know, but not a single human being can be taught to feel …
the moment you feel, you're nobody-but-yourself.
To be nobody-but-yourself-in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody else— means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight; and never stop fighting.
I'd rather learn from one bird how to sing
than teach ten thousand stars how not to dance.
unlove's the heavenless hell and the homeless home
