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.
