Picture of Marilyn

by Julia Carlson


She smokes a daisy
The stem bruised by her perfect teeth
Her skin is smooth as a petal
She inhales the petals with a sigh
She should comb her hair
But she doesn’t care
Marilyn smokes a daisy
Marilyn bites the stem
Marilyn smiles for a while
Marilyn smokes a flower
Delicate as life
Up in smoke.
