kisses are a better fate than wisdom

29 Jul

since feeling is first
who pays any attention 
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world

my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
than wisdom
lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry
–the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says

we are for each other: then 
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph

And death i think is no parenthesis

–e.e. cummings
