An Opening Line of the Likewise

" An Opening Line of the Likewise "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " Featuring the Accomplished "

the accomplished
recent self-release
while spinning
with tradition
as well as
the unexpected
twists and turns
of dramaturgical surgery
with the painstaking detail
of a noir gangster in drag
as a felon without question
Obsessively pressing
the fast-forward button
like a vibrating device
for trucking the mind
in front of each eye
stymying dilation
plus befuddling
the tongue
When tethered together
with momentum
while hanging our heads as a sign
of an opening line of the likewise
not far behind
Like the equivalent
of a sinister familiar
forced to draw
a single straw
and coming up short...
