Smiling Starlet (Marilyn)

by James K. Blaylock

captured in black and white,
you were, your days, beauty;

being sexy, and silly, and worldly,
you had everyone's total attention

but somehow you needed so much more;
so it's safe to say, madness conquered...

though your legacy is forever churning;
Hollywood framed you, smiling starlet
