Alex Katz's Real Muse

Homage to Alex Katz (Sorry Ada, he loves me


Alex Katz 
Cut many hats
 With an extremely close crop.
His chop became a precursor to Pop.

An obsession with Ada
Most definitely played a
Part in the heart of his work
In fact, it drove the master berserk.

Ada, Ada...he prayed ta
Ada - even put her face on a scarf
Ada on this, Ada on that;  the beach towel, a fait a-
Ccompli, made me barf.

Katz painted me in my 60's antiquity
Over and over and into ubiquity. In perpetuity
He'll dance with my cutouts, have drinks with my flats.
Ada is over and that's


That!
