Actually (not that it matters), Cummings almost undoubtedly wrote the
poem on a typewriter and submitted it to his publisher as a
typewritten manuscript -- in other words, monospaced.  So recreating
his manuscript using PRE and a monospace font would probably come as
close as you could get to what he originally had in mind.
