A Poem Mystery

Taking a tiny hiatus from my own current poems project this week, I was going to regale you with an old favorite poem of mine that I swear to god is either by Frank O'Hara or e. e. cummings. Snatches of it are clear in my mind, but after ten solid minutes of googling I've come up empty-handed. I'm almost positive it contains a reference to someone (proper name) hitting someone else (proper name) "with an uppercut" and either the whole thing ends, or perhaps only a stanza ends, with something very similar if not identical to: "and everybody I suppose thought Lucinda looked like Rose." If anyone on this green earth knows this poem and can tell me what it is I would be hugely grateful!
