a pretty how town

when i was in high school i remembered reading his poem with this name
it fascinated me
i decided if i ever was a writer i would write like him

here is a link to his poem a pretty how town

Downtown Magnolia

if you look at that poem it looks similar to my style of writing
without of course the poetry artistic touch he had

i decided i didnt like capital letters and punctuation
you know
like texting
which i call the modern day ee cummings method

so when i started my blog i saw it as an opportunity to use my own style ala ee cummings to write my blogs
i have noticed that it has oozed over into my emails and messaging
if fact if i have to write an official letter or recommendation or a reply to someone i struggle to do all the capitalizations and punctuations to make it write

see that write why do we have write right and rite
see i know the official correct word above is right
i once has an english professor who said if you understand the correct words and pronunciation its ok to break the rules
he was talking at that time about using the word aint instead of am not
cannt we just have one word maybe the short rite one

ive noticed there are times when you read my writing but you have to stop and do some thinking to figure out what im riting
sometimes thats done on purpose

when i read texting i notice folks use a different writing
we seem to usually understand what they are saying

i wonder if maybe ee cummings would have enjoyed the texting era
i know i do

someone once said to me
i try to read your blog but i have trouble understanding it

poetry maybe
it happens when i write things it the words just flow out of the tip of my fingers
i go back after i write it to try to clean it up and organize it

a writer once told me i wrote like ee cummings with a flight of idea method

ill take that

so thats why i write like i do with no caps and no punctuation
its in honor of ee cummings
its just to be different
maybe a little irreverant
maybe a little rebelliousness left over from my youth

i once did live in a pretty how town
it all left its impression on me
