e.e. cummings’ Electric Fur. {Sex Poems 1/10}

Yowza!

From the Department of Oh, My. With thanks for the tip to Sir Richard’s Facebook Page.

Drawing and poem both by 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 your,

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 so quite new

~e.e. cummings
