I was reading some ee cummings and came upon this poem that perfectly encapsulates the experience that is Coachella. What other poems do you know of that get at the heart of our beloved festival?

in Just-

by: e.e. cummings (1894-1962)

N Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame baloonman

whistles far and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's
spring

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old baloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and

it's
spring
and
the

goat-footed

baloonMan whistles
far
and
wee
