About Marilyn

by Martin A. Ramos

They found her dead and naked on her bed. (And even in death they said she was beautiful.) Her hand on the telephone a sign, surely a signal. This, her last attempt to reach out to us. And only the operator there to comfort her (in her last hour before the curtain falls). And all she said was, “Sorry, wrong number.”
