Buffalo Bill's

Buffalo Bill's
who used to
ride a watersmooth-silver
and break onetwothreefourfive pigeonsjustlikethat

he was a handsome man
and what i want to know is
how do you like your blueeyed boy
Mister Death

e e cummings

I awoke this morning with the last two lines of this poem running through my mind.

Woke up with the last two lines in your head? Wonder what dream brought that on. A blue eyed boy or Mr Death?

I always loved e.e. cummings when I was young because some of it was funny; and now I appreciate his more serious poetry such as this one.
