kind of

i like my body when it is with your

i like my body when it is with your
body. It is so quite new a thing.
Muscles better and nerves more.
i like your body. i like what it does,
i like its hows. i like to feel the spine
of your body and its bones, and the trembling
-firm-smooth ness and which i will
again and again and again
kiss, i like kissing this and that of you,
i like, slowly stroking the, shocking fuzz
of your electric fur, and what-is-it comes
over parting flesh ... And eyes big love-crumbs,

and possibly i like the thrill

of under me you so quite new

Edward Estlin Cummings

So maybe E.E. Cummings is talking about a different version of fur but when I read this I think of my pleasantly fuzzy SB with all of his sweaty masculinity and I feel all gooey inside.  I like to hug him and feel the differences between his body and mine: the triangular shoulders and big thighs that ice hockey players sport compared to my more fatty, curvy shape.  Today he told me that I was soft and feminine.  Goo.
