[love is more thicker than forget] - e. e. cummings

August 02, 2020

This poem entered my life in a funny way.

My brother had gifted me a little USB-powered thermal receipt printer (he gives weird gifts), and I was exploring creative uses for it. I was experimenting with setting up a little server that you can ping and have the printer spit out a random poem from poetrydb. I only was able to get it working for one poem, and then my computer stopped recognizing the printer. Thank you for this, little printer.

[love is more thicker than forget]

By E. E. Cummings

love is more thicker than forget

more thinner than recall

more seldom than a wave is wet

more frequent than to fail

it is most mad and moonly

and less it shall unbe

than all the sea which only

is deeper than the sea

love is less always than to win

less never than alive

less bigger than the least begin

less littler than forgive

it is most sane and sunly

and more it cannot die

than all the sky which only

is higher than the sky
