« A Hundred Years from Today [by Doris Day, Maxine Sullivan, Frank Sinatra, and June Hutton] | Main | Congratulations Emma Trelles, Poet Laureate of Santa Barbara, CA »

June 04, 2021


Thank you for a tremendous week of posts about an endlessly fascinating figure.
(BTW I watched a documentary recently about Sam Giancana, head of the mob in the 1960s, and the speculation among the mafiosi is that RFK had MM killed.) -- DL

Thank YOU for the invitation to write a week of Marilyn in Poetry from all angles. We'll never know...but having spent two years deeply engaged in researching and understanding her, I have my doubts that it was anything more than an overdose. And that her psychiatrists were the real villains in this sad story. HS

on when I
left the house

of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
