Crow Poem Revisited: Hairy Marilyn by Mark Tulin


Hairy Marilyn, Miss Monroe

you can’t hide from me

with your fake beard

and those Buddy Holly glasses.

I know that ruffled cocktail dress

over the subway grate

flying above your waist,

that panty shot

for the whole world to see.

Even if you are a cardboard

beauty, a freak of nature

in a Rocket Fizz candy store—

my jaw still drops.

I ogle at you anyway.


I am an author, poet, humorist, and short story writer from Palm Springs, California. I write about various topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia to my years as a family therapist and finally to my soul-searching in California. These are poetic narratives that may have humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry and stories resonate with you.
