“in spite of everything”

IMG_4286

in spite of everything
which breathes and moves,since Doom
(with white longest hands
neatening each crease)
will smooth entirely our minds
-before leaving my room
i turn,and(stooping
through the morning)kiss
this pillow,dear
where our heads lived and were.
(E.E. Cummings, “in spite of everything.” 1931.
