Crow Poem Revisited: Hairy Marilyn


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.


Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.
