Remember realizing
how beautiful Grace Kelly was,
how beautiful Dorothy Dandridge was,
how beautiful Ingrid Bergman was,
how beautiful Marilyn Monroe was,
how beautiful Ava Gardner was,
how beautiful Josephine Baker was,
how beautiful Audrey Hepburn was,
how beautiful Vivien Leigh was?
Remember realizing
all of them were dead?
