Poor Old Monica Lewinsky

Monica Lewinsky

 

Monica you were nothing to Bill and Bill was nothing to you.

He was the invention of your fame.

 

He was your notoriety and your rising from the Dead Sea

Like someone who was more than what she was

As Bill lapped salt with his tongue

And you floated to the surface of accidental fame.

 

You are jumping into the papers again like a Mexican bean.

You don’t exist.

You are an extension of Clinton’s legacy.

When you are separated from him you are not there.

 

clinton-lewinskyYou are the woman who fell into flashbulbs when her picture

Was invisible.

 

You want to be resurrected in Vanity Fair

But to come back you have to have first been here and

You never really existed.

 

You are the negative of film that was never placed

In the camera.

 

Hillary is running for president on the hem of your blue dress.

She won’t admit to having been involved in its manufacture.
