may i feel said he
rosas
innersmile
Já contei aqui no innersmile a forma como a poesia do ee cummings entrou na minha vida, primeiro pela porta do filme Hannah e As Suas Irmãs, do Woody Allen, e depois através de uma antologia de poesia norte-americana do século XX que me emprestaram. Logo nessa antologia descobri outro dos que continuam a ser os meus poemas preferidos do cummings. Acho que hoje é um óptimo dia para convocar aqui esse poema, até para espantar o blues do aniversário.

may i feel said he
(i'll squeal said she
just once said he)
it's fun said she

(may i touch said he
how much said she
a lot said he)
why not said she

(let's go said he
not too far said she
what's too far said he
where you are said she)

may i stay said he
(which way said she
like this said he
if you kiss said she

may i move said he
is it love said she)
if you're willing said he
(but you're killing said she

but it's life said he
but your wife said she
now said he)

(tiptop said he
don't stop said she
oh no said he)

(cccome? said he

(you are Mine said she)
