Explained Away as Parting Waves

" Explained Away as Parting Waves "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " Amid So Many "

Amid so many lucky breaks
explained away as parting waves
of heartache like a mild narcotic
with a likeness to headlines
over the rest of our lives
Staying up late as painfully
long days like a range
of off stages over the decades
adjacent to diluted moods
of refusal like a hula
Cradled with string
while balancing
alternatives to pandering
as patchy pageantry
like copy cats of the drab
With a flourish amid the rather
real-life gag of untapped
cat's cradles being replaced
by flirtation cast haplessly
backward and fizzling out
as juxtaposed solos
fated only to pose
at the opening salvo...
