Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
By Genevieve Taggard
From “The Way Things Go”

YOU and all the bulk of the huge sky
Crush me flat, my body on the sand,
Until I fling out my hands to clutch the little grains;
Until I struggle to see the little stars;
Until I try to think        5
Of the names of little lifeless things
I can escape to, when this is over.
