There is no accident, just as there is no beginning and no end. – Jackson Pollock

There is no accident, just as there is no beginning and no end

Just as there is no beginning

there is no end and

no accident.

Just as there is no accident

there is no end and

no beginning.

No accident is there

no beginning is there

just as no end is there.

There is no beginning and

there is no end

just as there is

no accident.

Paul’s Poetry Playground – The Pollock

The Pollock is a rather obscure and fairly eccentric poetry form invented by poet and art critic John Yau to pay tribute to the American abstract expressionist painter Jackson Pollock. It is a fourteen-line poem with the rather unusual requirement that the first line must be a quotation by the artist. The remaining thirteen lines consist strictly of words from Pollock’s quote, the idea being to splatter words repeatedly on the page like he famously did with paint on his canvases.
