E.E. Cummings was one fun dude. The guy is known for playing with whatever he could get his hands on (poetically speaking, of course). He's recognized (in fancier terms) as being a kind of linguistic rebel because of his nixing of punctuation and capitalization, along with virtually every other rule in the grammar book. But at a deeper level, we sense a truly playful nature in his voice and style that may tackle some universal themes, but does so in a way we can all relate to. Check out these other Cummings shakeups for a better idea of what he was about as a poet: "r-p-o-p-h-e-s-s-a-g-r," "why must itself up every of a park," and "my father moved through dooms of love."
