Can someone find me a link to that poem on the internet or if anyone could paste it as a reply that'd be great.

It's from mockingbird wish me luck
They Both Said

Bukowski's is too long to type out after
it was requested 7 months ago anyway.
But for those who have it, it's fun to see
how it matches up with e.e. cummings'
poem"”the original 'he saider, she saider.'
Does this mean that Bukowski read
cummings too and did a funny take-off
on his poem? (Oh noooo...he'd never
do that, lol.) Some things you can't prove,
but I say yes. And that means both
c. said, and B. said.

may I feel he said

may i feel said he
may i feel said he
(i'll squeal said she
just once said he)
it's fun said she

(may i touch said he
how much said she
a lot said he)
why not said she

(let's go said he
not too far said she
what's too far said he
where you are said she)

may i stay said he
which way said she
like this said he
if you kiss said she

may i move said he
is it love said she)
if you're willing said he
(but you're killing said she

but it's life said he
but your wife said she
now said he)
ow said she

(tiptop said he
don't stop said she
oh no said he)
go slow said she

(cccome?said he
ummm said she)
you're divine!said he
(you are Mine said she)

when i read the b poem i identified it with the c poem, too. unlikely coincedence, huh? nothing wrong with one poet, or poem, being a springboard for another poet...
