Alfred Kreymborg, ed.  Others for 1919.  1920.
 
Defeat
By Jeanne d’Orge
 
THE PIT is lined sharply with stones—
My bones are broken too…
This would be hard to bear
if I had not plucked the feathers of dead dreams
to pillow it.        5
I shall not move for a long while—
I am out with stars
since that last encounter
and I need no companions
other than the strange slim shapes of laughter        10
that come twisting out of tears
and circling close
to touch my wounds
with rainbow breath.
