What do i think of Jackson Pollock?

there’s so little form and rhythm
and colour in poetry nowadays….
the same goes for painting
sculpting…
music
form and rhythm and colour
diced and cubed in the 50s
mashed into chaos in the 60s
unsalvagable in the 21st century
freeform/abstract/blobs/spatters
splashed onto different canvasses
albeit words/paint/music/sculpture
form and rhythm and colour
form and rhythm and colour
without it
how does the spectator begin
to appreciate the spectacle?
whitman steinbeck thomas
art noveau impressionists
old masters gone
no new masters here
formless
rhythmless
colourless

    I sort of agree — you ever try those "colour by numbers" books?As for poetry, I\’ve got a collection of limericks I want to put on a blog site someday – maybe we could collaborate on this?
