I've been reading Blonde by Joyce Carol Oats. Which is the story of Marilyn Monroe with certain liberties taken (it is NOT a biography.) I like to fact check interesting things from books I read and it appears Miss Monroe was a bit of a poet. Team Sugar has done a beautiful job covering just this issue. You can read some of her poetries and look as some wonderful pictures as well here: http://teamsugar.com/165788
There is also a book called My Sex Is Ice Cream: The Poetry of Marilyn Monroe which can be purchased at amazon.com.
