AFTER THE BALL (Dismantled Bride)
After the ball was over
Jenny took out her glass eye.
Stood her false leg in the corner,
Corked up her bottle of dye.
Put her false teeth in the tumbler;
Hung her false hair on the wall.
All the rest went to the bye-bye,
After the ball.
The same theme is explored in prose in Poe's "The Man Who Was Used Up."
