Joan Rivers (born Joan Alexandra Molinsky)    1933-2014

 

raspy loudmouth

who pounced

on America’s obsessions

with flab, face-lifts, body hair

and other blemishes

of neurotic life,

including her own,

in five decades

of caustic comedy

that propelled her

from nightclubs to television

to international stardom
