Marilyn

a note for the doctor taped on her stomach.
marilyn
with nothing on but the radio,
dyeing her pubic hair for the first time.
everybody’s got something in common with
marilyn
quite mad,
like her mother.
Marilyn
with no make-up
a country bumpkin
in flip-brimmed hat.
someone should have warned her
about jealous Italians.
marilyn
wired for sound
in the president’s bed,
her consummate body
limp as spongecake
after Bobby left.
the fuzzy end of the lollipop.
the pursued lips.
marilyn
shivering in sweater in times square subway.
the backalley abortions, the fruitless womb.
marilyn
running up belltower stairs
in high heels
marilyn
when the roses stopped coming.
