In the Presence

" In the Presence "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " A Suspension:
"Take One" & "Take Two"

A suspension
of first impressions
in the presence
of refreshing seconds
shown off as breadth
with remnants
of immense spectacles
Largely ignored
as sibilant mourners
just before
the wing of an all-
important altar
Depicting the shore
as line along water
like prisoners of war
sloshing after a tsunami
Recently seized
as a kind of thing
like a world-altering piece
acquired by a museum
and hung for all to see...
