    “Self-portrait with sketchpad (1939) 

             e.e. cummings

                  ________

one of e.e. cummings‘ poems that I 
didn’t know of, i carry your heart  
with me(i carry it in]“, but that is 
apparently one of his most 
accessible, is explored and 
wonderfully deconstructed in this
video, which’ll also prove how much 
we need nerds, people who’ll open 
up areas of profound but murky 
matter for us 

  [i carry your heart with me(i carry it in]

         i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
         my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
         i go you go,my dear;and whatever is done
         by only me is your doing,my darling)
                                                                i fear
         no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
         no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
         and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant
         and whatever a sun will always sing is you

          here is the deepest secret nobody knows
          (here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
          and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
          higher than soul can hope or mind can hide)
          and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart

          i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

                                                  e.e. cummings
                                                         


when I grow up, I want to be a nerd

psst: listen to how “the nerdwriter”, Evan Paschal, 
         deconstructs Donald Trump

life lessons from Ethel Merman and Donald O’Connor

is this a dramatic monologue, I asked

it depends on who you think she’s
talking to, I answered

cheers

the importance of proper spelling‏

 

on the library website, where I often browse
new comments on borrowed items, books
mostly, or films, someone had written the
following heady indeed, though terse
enough, observation about Titanic  
 
            “I was BALLING by the end of this!”
 
with even the capital letters
 
 
hi, I had to reply, I’m sure you meant
“BAWLING”, and not “BALLING”, just
checking, cheers
 
leaving my own not especially otherwise
pertinent critique about the film
 
couldn’t help it 
 
 
cheers
