Marilyn by Jessica Harrison
English artist Jessica Harrison’s recent work has included a collection of traditional ceramic figurines with a gruesome twist. Following in the footsteps of Seth Grahame-Smith’s Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Marilyn, a favourite from the delicate series, is one of the more subtle creations.

Marygold

Though we never met

She’s a vision I can’t forget

A ghostly silhouette

*

Her brush strokes dance at night

to make sense of twilight

I cannot say goodnight  

*

A flower of the dead

Kept alive inside my head

Kept only by a thread

*

The harlequins they sway

and cupid steals away

the pieces of my heart 

*

My dreams are captured in a frame

She knows me I cannot say the same

By the name of Gold, this Rose of Destiny

*

Garlands of glittering gold remain

Our Nights forever in a frame

Where the nude girls spin in see through crinoline 

*

As her show unfolds

Her secret shall be told

That is Mary’s mystery

*

I lie awake at night

haunted by her twilight

We cannot say goodnight 

*

My dreams are captured in her frame

She knows me I cannot say the same

By the name of Gold, this Rose of Destiny

Garlands of glittering gold remain

Our nights together in a frame

Where the nude girls spin in see through crinoline 

*

Oh Mary. Mary Mary Gold

Your secret shall be told

of how the nude girls spin in see through crinoline
