Yesterday I received a request from Didier Editions — a French publisher who included my Marilyn Monroe poem, “It’s Me,” in a previous book — to bring it out in an English textbook this fall. The book will be for French students aged 15-16 years old and titled “IN FULL SWING, 2de.”
Not long ago I told you about this poem and how it pops up from time to time. Chalk up another one for Marilyn. And out goes another thanks to Jan Greenberg for inviting me to write a poem inspired by an Any Warhol diptych painting for her winning book, HEART TO HEART, which appeared in 2001.
