sonnet for lynn



margaret marples rutherford at seventy

myrna loy as nora

mary aster shining in silver


billie holiday at the end of a needle

flora purim you're everything

pattie santos making it a beautiful day


a small package named josephine miles 

rosalia de castro is the black rose

the wit of roz chast 


gabriela sabatini in ankle socks

brit baker extraordinaire martha collison 

les quatre parfums lisa paula deana joannie 




mascot of the stitched wrist sylvia plath

too dark for the occasion

This is elegant, full of memories, music, poetry and history. It takes me back to a different time in my life: Flora Purim, I must go back and relive her music, thank you.

Beautiful, Lynn. I am so glad i took out time to read and re-read your poem- not just a poem but layers and layers of unpeeling of persona and getting to essence and still not hold it but just kind of get a glance of it. beautiful.

I don't know who 99% of these people are. Damn I feel uncultured HA!

So many great female icons! But each is one dimensional yet added together, they reveal your heart... Lynn.
I was transfixed by this.

Odd that billie holiday is not too dark...yet sylvia plath is. But it is what it is, which is yours. I am keeping this to come back time and time again.
