About memy name is jim longley. i suppose i am a poet. Let's just leave it at writer. i am also e. e. cummings for this class. i once read a research paper claiming that the famous de-capitalization of cummings' name was a myth that developed around him as he became somewhat famous for assaulting traditional syntax and punctuation. i can't remember how good the evidence was, but i think we are all so inherently self-centered that any remind of our universal insignificance that we can create for ourselves ought to be fostered. there's so much more to know about this poet/painter/trickster/lover. ol' edward estlin was the first poet to ever really make the written word sing inside me. this should be fun
