Carlos Eduardo Jaramillo

(Ecuador, 1932)

Marilyn Monroe ascending to the skies

Gloriously drunk
by the joy of living
of being loved
even by the loneliest
male on earth
the wind raises up your dress
blowing from the grating of Avernus
in the heart of Manhattan
all the love in the world
in your half-closed
smiling eyes
and the inflamed rose of your mouth
an infinite kiss

With this slender foot
in those beautiful sharpened legs
the splendid knees
you entered the kingdom of the unforgettable

Such a perfect manner
of being perfect and Unique

/Norma Jean in bloom/
Marilyn butterfly
ascending to the skies.
