Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Perspicuity
By Robert M. McAlmon
 
From “Flying”

PIROUETTES
My plane
To the moon’s
Perigee;
Papilionaceously        5
Lingers in its aura’s
Phosphorescency;
Then, mutable ever,
Flits to Mars’ perihelion.
O plane polytheistic!        10
 
Atavistic
In etherealism,
Seeking planets
Phantasmagorical,
Into pellucid        15
Pleonasm of space
I float
Evanescently.
 
Near the sheer blaze
Of the sun,        20
The translucent phlegm
Of my being
Reveals that I
Am the penumbra
Of the universe.        25
