    Default Coachella Poems

    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
