An untitled poem by Florine Stettheimer

My attitude is one of love
is all adoration
for all the fringes
all the color
all tinsel creation
I like slippers gold
I like oysters cold
and my garden with mixed flowers
and the sky full of towers
and traffic in the streets
and Mallard’s sweets
and Bendel’s clothes
and Nat Lewis hose
and Tappe’s window arrays
and crystal fixtures
and my pictures
and Walt Disney cartoons
and colored balloons.
