What the Mice See in the Museum 

Pollack only trusted his accidents.
Rothko vacationed in orange.
Miro kept painting big eyelashes in threes &
Kline couldn't decide between a yellow sky & clouds
on the lawn.

Pollack fancied Daffy Duck, if you look hard enough.
Rothko wanted all of us to live out of focus.
Miro essentially managed a circus &
Kline missed his calling reinventing telephone poles.

No wonder the girl is all legs under a green skirt
running towards monstrous eyes in the forest.
Half the paintings smell like blue cheese,
half Camembert.
