This poem reminds me of a sketch by Raymond Chandler, something quite similar was written by him, I think!

This poem is just so much fun. Every teenager should get it with their first pack of condoms.

can't u see she is manipulating him. he is merely a puppet. she is absolutely under control of this whole situation.

the style of the poem is very playful, though i may not be a critic, i'd say its a relief from all the seriously 'descriptive' poems. the poem may seem straightforward but if you look between the lines, it describing something more than sex
Dr. Seuss for adults

(I'm not mocking cummings; Dr. Seuss was a genius.) I don't think the woman was manipulating the man. I thought she just wanted to make sure he really loved her before she consented to adultery. Afterward she decided that he did.

Sex or Love? Mostly Sex
Added by: Jessica C
Though I love the poem and Cummings' witty style, which so noticeably juxtaposes his usual, overt style and irregularity of syntax, I feel that many misinterpret the poem. It is about adultery. Yes, it is sexy, but it is not meant to be given to a significant other in a proclamation of love. It is a saucy poem that need not be interpreted as romantic. It is cute, playful, sexy, yet deviant. Is Cummings speaking of love or sex? this is common question that can be applied to all his sexual poems. I think it's sex because Cummings rarely speaks of love.
