An undated poem about bridges

Marilyn writingOh damn I wish that I were
dead -- absolutely nonexistent --
gone away from here -- from
everywhere but
how would I…
There is always bridges --
the Brooklyn bridge…
No, I love that bridge
(everything is beautiful from there
and the air is so clean)
Walking it seems
peaceful
even with all those cars
going crazy underneath.
So it would have to be
some other bridge,
an ugly one with no view -- except
I like in particular all bridges --
there's something about them, and besides
I've never seen an ugly bridge.
