Sam Francis
by Bruce


Now lay me down
upon a field
of strewn and splattered canvas
I don't know art
but what I like
is things by good Sam Francis

A dollop here
a wallop there
and white space in the middle
Your seven year old
kid could do that?
Well here's a riddle

What's green and blue
and white all through
and gots no lines to mention
but with its balance
tint and hue
creates a surface tension?

What glows like glass
and what shines like steel
but just is mostly whiteness?
Sam Francis does
Sam Francis is
He's art, he's Mr.Rightness
