There is more about this man than CATS. He Had a large body of work "cats if you will But something else from his work may tempt your juices ..

I second this nomination. And while it is true that nothing else he's done can quite compare to the cultural and intellectual impact of CATS 2019, there actually is quite a bit of imagery in his poetry that might inspire you. Hollow men, yellow fog, claws on the ocean floor, and the occasional hippopotamus. Here are some juicy examples:

I've wondered whether that helped inspire Dylan's Desolation Row:

Praise be to Nero's Neptune
The Titanic sails at dawn
Everybody's shouting
"Which side are you on?"
And Ezra Pound and T. S. Eliot
Fighting in the captain's tower
While calypso singers laugh at them
And fishermen hold flowers
Between the windows of the sea
Where lovely mermaids flow
And nobody has to think too much
About Desolation Row.

I'm on board with this one :-) Standard or Extended?

Oh yes. So much imagery

The Waste Land; fire sermon. Not sure I'd be able to do it justice though!

I'm not an Extended person (perhaps that's why I'm only 5'2") but I do think his poetry lends itself to some extra magic.....

If anyone needs a source it looks like most/all works are available for free download at Project Gutenberg:

Already spent too much time on this challenge. Hopefully, the final result will be on the level
