"Number 1 by Jackson Pollock," Nancy Sullivan


No name but a number.
Jackson Pollock's "Number 1"



Trickles and valleys of paint
Devise this maze
Into a game of Monopoly
Without any bank. Into
A linoleum on the floor
In a dream. Into
Murals inside of the mind.
No similes here. Nothing
But paint. Such purity
Taxes the poem that speaks
Still of something in a place
Or at a time.
How to realize his question

Let alone his answer?
