less viscous abstract

By NikesRain

why did the woman beat her head against the wall?
because it felt so good when she stopped

she's not stopping

seven hits away

from a brain matter rendition

of something Pollock might

consider thoughtful

but this is not art

and she is


so close to grace

as dripping paint

    the Rorschach spatters of a muted poet, perhaps. perfect as always.
