Picking Up the Pace

" Picking Up the Pace "

by Suzán Jiván

Now and over
to the next fennel
and garlic
starting to soften
over medium heat
thickening slightly
Estimated on Thursday
picking up the pace
with change
in the making
as traces
of persuasion
by lantern-faced
with insatiable
slavering fangs
as dopplegängers
just days away
from the long-awaited
Closed for renovation
wafting from a café
all in the name
of fire regulations
and reinstallations
of imagined space
with great anticipation
in an empty gray space
of bewildering states
of opiate intoxication
unmoored from self-
deprecating foundations
with waivers...
