Listen to poem:
Paul Jackson Pollock Condense versions that affected the times, Immense variants that scoped his pleasures, Florence immersed unravel a mentor, Propense expounds at immortal measures. Paul J. Pollock, painter, from Wyoming, Haul labeled abstract impressionist art, Gall at pouring, splashing, horizontal, Call, was his ardor, loved beyond his heart. Drip technique viewed canvass at all angles, Whip body whole, frenetic dancing style, Flip the brush, traverse the canvass boldly, Grip abrupts a hold, paint flicks, dons a smile. Divide hath praised his immediacy, Pride his fluency of the creation, Deride the random effects of his art, Astride the split, sits a fenced summation. Face that he wore was like seasons changing, Space art goes on, naught a start, nor an end, Trace that he drew, nay pictures, but events, Chase rare acclaimed, never, nor what they penned. He paints Blue Poles in 1952, The Australian government purchased it, Be it known, poles sought, chase made, was futile, We found the entitled, be a misfit. First, the Mural most expensive of his, Burst, Number 17-A, naught mellow, Dispersed, Mural on Indian Red Ground, Versed, The Deep black and white, hints of yellow. Guise his failing marriage with Lee Krasner, Unwise, alcohol, substitutes his wife, Empathize, Ruth Kligman, unfaithfulness, Dies, drunk driving, Ruth lived, late renown life. 2020 February 08 *3rd Place* STRAND SELECT J ,any form,any theme ~~Brian Strand

Such rarity to be exposed e'er so briefly and our ills so tenuously fragile its hold to grace the Heavens -- Aloha Sam!~@wk
