I got the feeling of Marilyn as a shiny plastic-wrapped doll from the first two lines, but with the third line I lost the thread though I love the image.

Nice senryu. She continues to fascinate us, doesn't she?

Helen said...

Wonderful .... you captured her aura well.

I like the way you allude to the doll-image with the cellophane. If she only knew how much we all loved her after she was gone.

Good job on this. I guess we're all easy to see and hard to read.

great haiku...we saw her facade, but not what was hidden inside
