A to Z : i like my body - e.e. Cummings

 It is week two of Arlee Bird's 2013 A to Z Challenge!  For the challenge (and National Poetry Month) I have decided to post a poem for each letter of the alphabet!
i like my body
Written by e.e. Cummings

i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite a new thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which I will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh...And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly i like the thrill
of under me you quite so new


  1. Ah, the electrifying emotions that comes with new love. . . (:

    1. and in this case, new lovers... bow chick bow bow... wait, was that immature of me? hahaha

  2. A poem a day is quite a feat! Really nice, good job.

    1. there definitely were a few letters that took quite awhile to find something for!

  3. Strange kind of poem somehow.
