Unorthodox Happenings

April 10, 2008
By Meaghan Coombs, Abington, MA

Drugs high, money low,
A wild child like Marilyn Monroe

A photographer at best,
Outrageous and famous in New York streets

Like a bullet, prominent and scared,
Her life staged like a Warhol painting

Significant friend, collaborator, and contributor,
Manhattan scene child, bad life, her apartment a factory

Drug cabinet, her friend and caretaker,
Record playing, infamous, dead.
