E. E. Cummings’s erotic poems and drawings gathered in a single volume.
Many years ago the prodigious and famously prolific E. E. Cummings sat in his study writing and thinking about sex. His private brooding gave way to poems and drawings of sexual and romantic love that delight and provoke. Here, collected for this first time in a single volume, are those erotic poems and sketches, culled from Cummings’s original manuscripts by the distinguished editor George James Firmage.

just once said he)
it’s fun said she
(may i touch said he
how much said she
a lot said he)
why not said she
