Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
To W. C. W. M. D.
By Alfred Kreymborg
 
THERE has been
Another death.
This time
I bring it to you.
You are kind,        5
Brutal,
You know
How to lower
Bodies.
I ask only        10
That the rope
Isn’t silk,
(Silk doesn’t break)
Nor thread,
(Thread does.)        15
If it lifts
And lowers
Common things,
It will do.
