Poet's Notes

~the satin doll~

had voluptuous curves, grandeur,

~the satin doll~

with a sultry voice like a child,

moved a president, it is clear,

Marilyn was childlike veneer,

~the satin doll.~


For Nette

a satin veneer

                         ~the satin doll~
               had voluptuous curves, grandeur, 
                        ~the satin doll~
                  with sultry voice and a sweet smile,
                  moved a president, it is clear,
                   Marilyn was childlike veneer,    
                         ~the satin doll.~
