Abstract Art


I've got nothing.......
I know it's something.......
It can be anything......
It can be everything!

I saw nothing
A stroke means something.
From a pauper to a king
A faucet to a sink? ?

My friend does abstract
When I view
I have to subtract
What I see
And try not to see
What it could be
And cannot be
That is the art
of Abstract.

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
