Bye Bye Kitties

Catherine Graham
From:   Pupa. Toronto: Insomniac Press, 2003.


Inside long boudoirs, dolls lounge and laze,
recline like vamps on pianos, divans.

Smart set mascots of 'The Charleston' days
accompany ladies on city streets.

Cinema magic, that's where it's at.
Bohemian Clara, the ultimate 'It'.

Lenci creates high quality bodies,

exquisitely so, no flapper dare part with.

Until The Crash. The well to do falling…
goodbye to dolls better dressed than they.
