Jackson Pollock
   there's a feeling there
it's stuck in my wrist
   so I slice it off
      and it flipped up to my throat
   I wrung it out
      and it slipped to my tummy
         I struck it again
      it bounced to my head
         I shot a load
            and smothered my canvass 
         dead and red
