      Original post

      The following piece inspired by Norma Jean Baker, a candle in the wind.

      Banished from The Garden a frightened, shivering unicorn lost in the woods.

      An empire has been built to honour her memory celestial centerfold gallery

      restless, hanted king.

      A beguiling labyrinth cream entwined inside laden sleeping beauty;

      a glimpse of hope suddenly she's galloping freedom lies ahead

      through the forest clearing a flash of light her face in the sky

      God's reign of tears

      her unfulfilled dream shattered her lost poetry scattered

      generations of exaltation futile fortune's rapaciousness

      to recapture her vibrant essence millions

      upon millions

      upon millions

      behold vitrescent red rose begging mercy for her soul

      her country's eternal sorrow.

      Her lover's final betrayal desolate anguished angel

      address book; night table

      in her forsaken farewell.
