july second two thousand and four

Posted to Poetry

Marlon Brando died last night

because he could not stop for ice-cream
ice-cream stopped for him

I'm not sure who found his dead sweaty carcass
I'm really not jealous

when I watch James Dean in 'Giant"
he affects his best Brando

in heaven, Marlon is always in black and white
young, succulent, cocky, cool....

he's playing gin rummy with Marilyn Monroe
right now she's winning
but they've got forever
