I don't know much about poetry (that sounds like a song), so I might be way off base here, but I really can't decide if e.e. cummings was a revolutionary poet. Some of his poetry is thought-provoking or whimsical or structurally unique and completely great; other poems seem juvenile or overly fixated on sexuality. I found it hard to tell which poems were going to be good because poetry is very experience-oriented. In fact I'd say that a poem's 'goodness' is often a (monotonic increasing) function of its personal relevance. With e.e. cummings, if you can get past that relevance barrier, I think you might find something of interest.
