Paintings by Jackson Pollock and Mondrian in conversation

“How about it then, babe?

I could do with someone like you to give me structure.

Our offspring could go anywhere

with my sense of freedom

and your neat lines and squares.

We could make beautiful music together

and let’s face it – you’d benefit

from a bit of loosening up.”


“What makes you think I’d look twice at somebody like you?

You’re like an un-made bed.

You talk as if you’d be doing me a favour –

well, think again!

I’m happy with my lines and angles.

If I want loosening up, I’ll find a yoga class.
