Sonnet #15 - Poem by Ted Berrigan

In Joe Brainard's collage its white arrow
He is not in it, the hungry dead doctor.
Of Marilyn Monroe, her white teeth white-
I am truly horribly upset because Marilyn
and ate King Korn popcorn,' he wrote in his
of glass in Joe Brainard's collage
Doctor, but they say 'I LOVE YOU'
and the sonnet is not dead.
takes the eyes away from the gray words,
Diary. The black heart inside the fifteen pieces
Monroe died, so I went to a matinee B-movie
washed by Joe's throbbing hands. 'Today
What is in it is sixteen ripped pictures
does not point to William Carlos Wiliams.
