Martha Graham

Energy builds, surges through my body
drum beats  become my heart beat
eyes closed, i come to life.
places do not matter. only passion. I am unconscious to the problems of the world. 
My body only knows my feelings.

Expression. Creation. No one understands; My lifestyle of expression.
a life style of expression
movement, piece by piece. my body comes to life.
i begin to dance, i flow. like water in a stream.
i take the form of my emotion. 
Dance is my life style of expression, no one understand.

Andy Warhol

Behind the psychedelic wig,
the burlesque pose and the calm attitude,
behind your desire for the world to change
by your electrical sentences,
by your inexplicable behavior
a storm roared:

Exiled to Earth
you could not find meaning to this so common life,
nor find peace in your everyday,
nor even in the vain pleasures that you showed,
nor in the vague experience of fame.

Sad like a child,
for the lack of love,
trying to hide in plastic your pain
no sedative could make disappear
your almost painted violet tears.

And in that suffer you found
the necessary light
to change your habitat
that of the common consumer citizen
and trade it for that Technicolor heaven,
which acted as a narcotic in your mind.

You then got drunk
with the flashing lights
that blinked
in Hollywood’s sky
and you became sick,
sick with a social disease.

From intellectuals to Bohemian street people
everybody was welcome in your Factory;
your home, your place of peace
where anybody could attain
“15 minutes of fame”.

Your unbelievable talent
will always be remembered
In a way or another, you've made a difference,
you've change the world.

Frank Lloyd Wright

An American Creator

Nature is the key
Smoothly it flows like the sea
Originality is essential
For a structure among the trees

The water is a guideline
It flows along with the design
The building is almost divine
Giving off a sense of sublime

Going against the grain
Is how I created my domain
To never accept defeat
Is to be among the elite

I connect structure and society
By giving the public some variety
Most think my goal is to amaze
Because I leave my audience in a daze

I design for humanity
For my structures are created organically
I am Frank Lloyd Wright
I am the American knight
Of Architecture

Roy Lichtenstein

Roy Lichtenstein is a pop artist that tells stories through his work. I decided to try and put together a poem using his pieces of artwork. The poem shares the love life of a young women between two men and her decision.
