Pop Out of the Dark

" Pop Out of the Dark "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " It Doesn't Matter "

It doesn't matter
practicing being scared
when mobsters
pop out of the dark
and you get
your freak on
with a superstar
dear to your heart
while chugging
a cocktail
in spotted pajamas
Screaming can hardly
be helped
when suitably
creeped out
in a haunted house
stalked by chainsaws
and dim quarters
Choose any medium
like a gnarled bottle
in a scarlet box
as angels drop
on what will follow
perched on stars
with a fixed repertoire
Miraculously intact
built from scratch
based on patterns
of artifacts
believed to have
Only graphics
on a black screen
with typed commands
like, " walk east "
and, " open window "
with no mouse
and no sound
wandering without
never having
been allowed...
