Artist Pop – Adrian Slatcher

 

Artist Pop

I am Warhol of the screen tests,
filming everything, every day in the Factory

I am Warhol of the screenprints,
endless fascination in the repeated image

I am Warhol of the “banana” cover
sat in the control booth, producing

And I am Warhol of the Campbell’s soup cans,
except I’m hungry, and have opened them.
