Life as Marilyn

Life –
I am of both of your directions
Somehow remaining hanging downward the most
but strong as a cobweb in the wind.

I exist more with the cold glistening frost.
But my beaded rays have the colors
I’ve seen in a paintings —
ah life, they have cheated you.

–Marilyn Monroe

What to Wear

It isn’t true I had nothing on. I had the radio on.

–Marilyn Monroe

The Middle of Life

“There is a forest in the middle of life.”

–Dante

The Bones of the Dead

Drive your cart and your plow over the bones of the dead.

–William Blake
