So, I’m not a huge fan of poetry. In fact I hate it. I think it’s stuffy and disgustingly glorified. So when I found ee cummings, at first I had the hatred of a thousand hells for this man. But then after coming back to his poems several times, I started to gain an appreciation for his work. Especially the “nonsensical” poem that so enraged me the first time.

I decided to have a bit of fun and try to write a poem in his “nonsensical” style modeled after his poem “brIght”
