I think this short but sweet poem captures the very essence of the 1920's,
live for today as if you are going to die tomorrow, but you never
do....drink and have the best time of your life until that actually
happens...that was the 1920's right?

I don't think Dorothy took herself or her poetry even all that seriously.
This poem makes me think of just how we literally feel after a night of
careless drinking and debauchery. This poem isn't meant to moralize, but
is simply an observation.

if we live for the moment, as if there is no tomorrow, then reality in the
cold light of the day is the flaw
