I like that Bobad. eecummings was an interesting character. As for the WORD!!! Jesse used. It is HIS song. That is the word HE chose.
Actually this reminds me of driving home from seeing a Fellini film with five friends. What an amusing discussion!!!!!! Finally, Dorothy said (always the iconoclast?), "I'll bet he had a lot of fun doing that film and laughing to himself, 'what are they going to think I meant by this? and this? ... and this... Of course no one paid the slightest heed to me. In fact it was rather like this thread. Later I read an interview in which he came very close to quoting what I said.
Nit pick all ye like. It is a human aberration. Tis human to err.... And also to have fun...
