What A Writer

Charles Bukowski

what i liked about e.e. cummings
was that he cut away from 
the holiness of the
and with charm
and gamble
gave us lines
that sliced through the

how it was needed!
how we were withering 
in the old

of course, then came all
the e.e. cummings
they copied him then
as the others had
copied Keats, Shelly,
Swinburne, Byron, et

but there was only
e.e. cummings.
of course.

one sun.

one moon.
