Pollock - Number Twenty Seven
Imagination discovers number 27,
the shadow side of a New Year’s party
all diamonds and bile
the insides of a celebration
from a blind host
viewed from a balcony
flattened on the wall.
To paint the air
be led by revelations of
extracted energy particles -
the history of the colour bronze
woven in the magic of fingertips,
to pluck colour from
flowers, sky, asphalt, paint cans
give it meaning in our lives
let the meaning give itself
meaning in the mixture and
swirl and combination, and some
people, some people begin from
a God-perspective in the air
above the canvas a Fantasia
conductor of colour and conversation,
musical emotion falling from drips and droplets
until splatter mingles into arrangements,
symphonies of city plucked like Pollock pollen
painted in the country,
in a barn across a field.
