The Life of Paul
Everyone knows Pollock shits on.
Abstract painters can never be.
Consistently volatile is normal in.
Splash some dark green to.
Sometimes sobriety needs a little.
A drunk convinced everyone art.
Influence works both ways like.
Pearly colors mixed in with.
Never question the authenticity of.
Depression has some positives if.
“Lucifer” was a true expressionist.
The unconscious painting style was.
Avant-garde means it does not.
An unfaithful man makes for.
No clear meaning behind each.
Bar fights just mean Jackson.
Krasner deserves more respect than.
A touch of darkness completed.
Marriage is an abstract piece.
Splattered against a birch tree.
