Sonnet #15


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

and the sonnet is not dead.

washed by Joe's throbbing hands. 'Today
What is in it is sixteen ripped pictures
does not point to William Carlos Wiliams.
