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

IN pursuit my plane
Penetrantly perceives
The ineffable fallacy
Of premature theories
On insurmountable space.        5
 
The litany of attack
Creatively promulgates itself
To isolated planets—
Startled spectators
Of my persistence.        10
 
Area is fuel to be consumed.
The wilderness of sky
Is foliaged resplendent—
Color in permeable black.
The center of all homage        15
Alters with my plane.
