Alfred Kreymborg, ed.  Others for 1919.  1920.
 
Pietà
By Evelyn Scott
 
THE CHILD
Warm chubby thighs, fat brown arms,
An unsurprised face—
Cries for jam.
The mother buys him with jam…        5
An old woman
Tottering on lean leather-skinned legs
Sucks with glazing eyes
The crystal silken milk
That flows from the death wound        10
In a young flower-soft, jewel-soft body.
