Harriet Monroe, ed. (1860–1936).  Poetry: A Magazine of Verse.  1912–22.
 
Winged Victory
By Hortense Flexner
 
YOUR flimsy dress,
Out of a bargain basement,
Reacts to the wind
As the living draperies
Of the Victory of Samothrace.        5
Your body also is proudly revealed,
Cleaving the air as hers.
And, verily, you would do as well
Without a head.
