“Anyone Lived in a Pretty How Town”

The poem “Anyone Lived in a Pretty How Town,” written by E.E. Cummings, is about normal people living in an average town. E.E. Cummings writes, “one day anyone died I guess / and no one stopped to kiss his face” meaning that everyone was all the same, and “women and men cared for anyone, not at all.” He shows how time passes and nothing changes, when he repeats “spring summer autumn winter.” The people he refers to in this poem can be anyone who lives in “a pretty how town.”
