capturing a single moment of a life
in the lost land of the past.
The youthfulness had disappeared
from Francis Farmer's elegant features;
no longer a glamorous movie star
but a poet finally finding peace
after such troubled and turbulent years
in and out of asylums
as she approaches the journey's end,
red lips and figure still enticing.
Yet age has brought a beauty of its own.
Her eyes ignore the camera's lens
as she caresses a white kitten.
She was a Hollywood rebel who yearned for more
than the shallow glory she received.
