Belle Canto Stardom

" Belle Canto Stardom "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " Must Be Done "

Must be done as much
as a thrashing man
like an overbearing female
fueling the jukebox
of an unsound heart
like a pick-pocketed
show stopper retooled
by an uprooted boomer
Trying really really hard
in belle canto stardom
on tele-charge
as innocuous
ungodly, and largely
charm-free buried
reordering glee
Pioneering revivals
in the twilight
like a diva-sized ego
that never dies
after a haunting life
hiding out otherwise
inside indecipherable
Fallen under the spell
of a hooch-swilling
bawdy talker
mixing sordid songs
with little more
than overwrought
rotating casts
of amassed
farcical criminal
fragility clinched
with narcissistic rigidity...
