E.E. cummin' on her face, now that's poetry in motion
I doubt one of the preeminent voices of 20th century poetry, E.E. Cummings, would appreciate such a crass pun, but maybe he would?
“Poetry in Motion” was also an ad campaign by the transit authority in NYC that basically plastered subways and buses with quotes from poets such as e. e. (short for Edward Estlin, not Easy E) Cummings.
Now picture e. e. cummings sitting on your face
Also E. E. when said fast sounds like a stuttered “he he” which makes the line “He, he cummin' on her face, now that’s poetry in motion.” A far more literal line but very clever when combined with the E. E. Cummings reference.
It also sounds like the creaking of a bed, like the beat in Marvin Gaye and Chardonnay. As well the “E. E.” sounds like a witch’s cackle (referencing back to the previous line).
