Happy Birthday Norma Jean!

Humble beginnings,

Sheltered in stark contrast,

A life in royal bloom.


The avenues of her steps

Echo in


Furs scraped against

The walls of chaos.


Bled in fury of her form,

Taken to the downstairs lair,

Drenched in diamonds, delusion,

And care.


Laid in a simple drawer,

Her modest return,

Silver screen


Cut from a steaming reel

In the wash of dark theaters.


The light of

Her glittering stare

Reflecting back to its

Quiet origins,

Simple, barren,

A backwards growth

From tulip to flare.
