Analysis and comments on Red Slippers by Amy Lowell

Subject of the poem

I thought this poem was a litle confusing, but thought it was about how
there can be a really beautiful thing (like the red slippers) but people
will pay no attention to these beautiful things right in front of their
eyes because of another unique, though not as stunning, thing (like the
cardboard lotus bud). That's how I saw it at least, but i have no idea :P

the poem is not complete; it's supposed to be a lot longer. but anyway, its
really weird. i really cant find a meaning behind "the red slippers".
