i like my body when it is with your

e.e. cummings

 

 

 

i like my body when it is with your

body. It is so quite new a 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 furr, and what-is-it comes

over parting flesh....And eyes big love-crumbs,

 

and possibly i like the thrill

 

of under me you so quite new
