Ode To Marilyn

Updated on September 09, 2013

It’s been decades now.

I guess it’s safe to speak,

Of the sweetest love, as sought,

By the gods of the Greek.

.

Her name was Marilyn,

I would never forget her.

She was a star in her own right.,

None were ever better.

.

She taught at modest schools,

And at the finest university.

Her skills were never honed or shown,

Before teaching this student of adversity.

.

She taught linguistics enthusiastically,

She taught at colleges, even State.

If I were the better student,

I should never graduate.

.

Other teachers would teach me.

Some, I would marry.

Some could inflict,

All the pain one could carry.

.

My omni-lingual mistress,

Conveyed clearly every word,

A masterpiece of love,

As has ever been seen or heard.

.

She spoke fluently of the history, biology.

Architecture, and science of love,

She was aggressively active,

And as passively, peaceful as a dove.

.

Shopping For A Used Car At The Demolition Derby.

I look at every wreck,

To see if some salvage can be had.

But some repairs can run too deep,

And drive the mechanic mad.

.

If I take a dent out of there,

And put some shine over here,

I’ll have a relic from the ruin,

The labor of love will become so dear.

.

She was an earlier model,

But still looking pretty good,

You can’t judge a cover by the book,

Better check under the hood.

.

Some wires were crossed.

She ran hot from substance abuse.

She was creepy and cranky,

With more than a screw or two loose.

.

She evoked memories,

Of poetry of soft spoken rhymes.

Memories of long ago loves,

Of long ago times.

.

But the memory becomes,

A bit less obscured,

When one realizes the cost and loss,

And she can’t be cured.

.

It’s quite amusing really,

Yes, whimsically bizarre,

I’m shopping at demolition derbies,

To find a clean used car.

.
