Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
In the Mirror
By Leo Grudsky
 
I THINK I have taken
The shape that people die in.
 
Pallor of an urn in which
Inextinguishable ashes of hungers
Send up endless wreaths that whirl and vanish        5
With indifferent inevitability.
 
Death, powerless before the dead,
Becomes my shadow.
