As a Starlit Harlot

" As a Starlit Harlot "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " Cartwheeling
as Phosphorescent Stars "

Cartwheeling as phosphorescent stars
in rumors first heard to heed the need
to sightsee and eavesdrop
as a starlit harlot
and starry-eyed
On a former loading dock
standing apart from the harsh
with Johnnie Walker
in acknowledgment
of a Grey Goose
far removed as a muse
super hard and deeply fearful
Leaning over black granite
carefully grandstanding
with excited chatter
flapping as a bat
being ravaged
at a newsstand
Under close surveillance
on a yoke-back chair
carved from a single
block of marble
as seen on a blog
like continuity
in a limited series
of perfect acquisitions
filling the gap
as a major absence
depicting importance
in water and chalk...
