I avoided public speaking in college for...

I came across this tonight. Totally forgot about this until now but in undergrad, I avoided 3 classes until my last semester. Chemistry, English Writing, and Public Speaking. Instead of taking the typical speech class, I took a drama class. I figured it would be easier, which it was. I had to recite this poem by E.E. Cummings and act it out. When I went to act it out, it was kind of cute when I got to the electric fur part...tehehe....I was so vanilla back then...but I really am pretty vanilla now. Enjoy!

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

—e.e. cummings
