Marilyn - Poem by Douglas Scotney

'I'd forgotten a word
I thought started with syn.
Not there; so I looked up harmony
and found the more specific symmetry
that I'd deliberately defied
to be devilish.
Not diabolical, but impish,
puckish, mischievous.'

'What?
You attached a beauty spot? '

Topic(s) of this poem: beauty, harmony, star

    Marilyn did have a tiny spot on her flawless beauty. You ask the reader
    the right questions at the end.
