Asleep at Your Feet

" Asleep at Your Feet "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as " A Typical Scene ",
"Take One", "Take Two"

A typical scene
groaning with queries
served with wine & beer
beneath a big-screen TV
with a mongrel asleep
at your feet
woofing while dreaming
Post-Op everythings
as endless critiques
of heavy-hitting bleeps
too meaty to succeed
as the intervening elite
Refurbished after teetering
on the brink of a gazebo
as the singsong frolic
of toddlers in stroller pushcarts
Almost too smart
cerebral and self-conscious
watching and watching
discreetly, mind you
like unlicensed
explosive devices
in military archives
virtually improvised...
