‘If I should die,’ said I to myself, ‘I have left no immortal work behind me - nothing to make my friends proud of my memory - but I have lov’d the principle of beauty in all things, and if I had had time I would have made myself remember’d.’ - John Keats

“Like so many Americans, she was trying to construct a life that made sense from things she found in gift shops.” - Kurt Vonnegut

Inspired by [x], this is to show the range of roles that Marilyn Monroe played throughout her career and how she should not be judged on her dumb blonde roles, when her characters were so much more than that.

in case you missed it

somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond
any experience,your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look easily will unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously)her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully ,suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility:whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens;only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody,not even the rain,has such small hands

somewhere i have never travelled,gladly beyond by e.e. cummings

Louis Simo: He shoots himself, you all wait 45 minutes to call the police. That’s unusual.
Carol Van Ronkel: You ever been to a party where a man goes upstairs and blows his head off?
Louis Simo: No.
Carol Van Ronkel: Then how do you know what’s unusual?

movie #108 - Hobson’s Choice (TCMFF)

Margaret, are you grieving
Over Goldengrove unleaving?
Leaves, like the things of man, you
With your fresh thoughts care for, can you?
Ah! as the heart grows older
It will come to such sights colder
By and by, nor spare a sigh
Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie;
And yet you will weep and know why.
Now no matter, child, the name:
Sorrow’s springs are the same.
Nor mouth had, no nor mind, expressed
What héart héard of, ghóst guéssed:
It is the blight man was born for,
It is Margaret you mourn for.
Spring and Fall: to a Young Child by Gerard Manley Hopkins

Lola: Joe, would you like to take Lola some place tonight?
Joe Hardy: Gee, I – I sure would like to but, uh, you know what Mr. Van Buren would say.
Lola: He’d say you lucky boy.
Joe Hardy: No, no! He’d say it’s late. He likes us to get to bed early.
Lola: Any particular place?
