Scaffolded and rendered
A grand, colonial design
Matriarch meeting Monroe
The actress is still tall
Svelte and immortal it seems
The reinvented renovation
Perfection in the cosmetic
Both application and design
But comes ever the night
And upon a sea of cotton
She is then lost, becalmed;
A shipwreck; foundering,
Upon the rocks of time
And though we can forgive
An actress her last role
No woman, nor any man
May stay afloat forever
And sheets become shroud
To wrap a plastic life within
