even a pencil has fear to

by E. E. Cummings

E. E. Cummings

even a pencil has fear to
do the posed body luckily made
a pen is dreadfully afraid
of her of this of the smile's two
eyes.too, since the world's but
a piece of eminent fragility.
Well and when-Does susceptibility
imply perspicuity, or?
seeing her is not
to something or to nothing as much as
being by her seen, which has got
nothing on something as i think,
did you ever hear a jazz
or unnoise men don't make soup who drink.
