Pollock on canvas 32
Art is a principle
for how many centuries has
give me your spirit free
of bottled rites
but when relativity takes over
give me your education without
accept the discreteness of energy
throw off the fetters of footnotes
the clutter of
from the sky
like a wave-particle duality of light and matter
Refer me to references risky
reach beyond rust
enjoy the Mad Hatter's quantum tunneling
fear not the upturned nose that
plays hide and seek
around bends in the road
seek the Heisenberg uncertainty principle
the ken of tomorrow shall
wisk it away like a
in a writer's winter wind
Max Planck shall whisper the spin of a particle . . .
advance advantages by
you have followed with
Ssssplit stanzas in sixensss when
yYou read me a KcKcKcKollage
dDesigned by Mark Lowe,
Re-paint me an imagiodei
Ippolitov-Ivanov spatuled; then
wipe your knife clean on
memorize poets the critics
The poetry reading

Imagine my surprise
The nerve of some creatures!
then Doctor Borodin mixed Mussorgsky with Rimsky-Korsakoff
in a glass beaker no less
a little lemon juice . . . a little lime . . . some ripe tomato
a bit of thyme . . . and fashioned
yes, Pollock paint, for Heaven's sake!
not to be outdone
Paul Amrod's Symphony #11
came to life . . . grabbed a wide brush . . .
and with a hush painted . . .
which . . . as any architect will tell you
ballonné, pas and arabesque
["Yes, of course, I get it," said Susanne Langer.] (she would)
a Lion wings backward in that wind,
fLying against archetypes,
mMane sailing red in reverse,
