Meet the Author

E. E. Cummings (1894–1962) was among the most influential, widely read, and revered modernist poets. He was also a playwright, a painter, and a writer of prose. Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, he studied at Harvard University and, during World War I, served with an ambulance corps in France. He spent three months in a French detention camp and subsequently wrote The Enormous Room, a highly acclaimed criticism of World War I. After the war, Cummings returned to the States and published his first collection of poetry, Tulips & Chimneys, which was characterized by his innovative style: pushing the boundaries of language and form while discussing love, nature, and war with sensuousness and glee. He spent the rest of his life painting, writing poetry, and enjoying widespread popularity and success.

This is one of the most remarkable books that I've ever read - and I first flipped these pages 30+ years ago during my last year of college; the memories of this text stay with me still. How could anyone give these piece of writing less than '5' stars I'll never comprehend.

"Here's another slave for you boys." A mysterious, uniformed man pulled at a chain, resulting with a yelp from a young teenage girl. Her hands and her feet were chained with shackles. She fell down onto her knees and her forearms clumsily when she was handled with the man. As she pulled herself back up, she hissed and spat at the man's shoes. "She's a feisty one too." The man smirked as he pulled the chain along, dragging her and roughly tugging her into the last cell in its row, isolated from everyone else. He growled when she fought back against as he chained her to the wall, pinning her hands above her and pushing her down to her knees, also locking her waist to the wall.He slammed the door and locked her behind the bars, tossing the keys onto the floor by the boys. "Have fun with your new toy. Those are the keys to her chains too." The man said as he left. <br> Erika had a mess of blonde waves, falling down to her mid-back. She wore a small, black laced br<_>a; her breasts pushed together tightly to form a hole, a crevesse between them. Her skin was smooth, soft, and her body was completely waxed and shaven down. She wore a th<_>ong as a small act of mercy and nothing else but those two small articles of clothing. Erika was pretty and seemed almost delicate, yet slim with a slight athletic build. Her pretty blue eyes looked out from underneath her long eyelashes.

Lily wandered in, looking around with wide eyes. She absentmindedly played with the hem of her blue tanktop, which she wore over black leggings.

She is placed in one of the cells. She has no clothing except for a too small br<_>a and revealing pair of panti<_>es. Her brea<_>sts are a up size D and she has a wide waist as well as a nice round as<_>s.

Walks in, a long knife stab that starts from his face to his stomach from a long battle. He wears a button up shirt but doesnt button it up and gym shorts. 5'8 long blonde hair pushed to the right and a body builder kind of build and says to everyone "hey"
