Eunice Tietjens: The Dandy

tietjenseunice006

Eunice Tietjens

(1884 – 1944)

 

The Dandy

 

He swaggers in green silk and his two coats are lined

with fur. Above his velvet shoes his trim, bound

ankles twinkle pleasantly.

His nails are of the longest.

Quite the glass of fashion is Mr. Chu!

In one slim hand–the ultimate punctilio–dangles

a bamboo cage, wherein a small brown bird sits

with a face of perpetual surprise.

Mr. Chu smiles the benevolent smile of one who satisfies

both fashion and a tender heart.

Does not a bird need an airing?

 

(Wusih)
