Feminist Poem for Marilyn Monroe


There are no photos 
	of Marilyn Monroe
Just images of her lovers

Ed Clark   not the once-young
	negro abstract expressionist
Painted himself as Marilyn

Bent at the hip, arched back
	in white Griffith Park   her ass
Some tribute   her  one must presume  face ordered dilute

Later   as she lay back nude  one hand
	dissolving at the waist   Clarke rakes
Furious   spilling the end of the poem   on the edge of the frame.


The greasy, banister-cool
Hand props up some very mediocre

Type the word

The computer does the rest
Is no way to live.
