In a Topsy-Turvy Greenhouse

" In a Topsy-Turvy Greenhouse "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " Showy Cosmos:
Based Mostly on Sexual
Attraction "

Based mostly
on sexual attraction
timed to coincide
with incandescent lights
to the visibly recognized
profiles on one side
becoming more lifelike
with eyes fixed to the right
in formed alliances
with dynasties
as if by surprise
coveted by hundreds
cultivated by cults
with a cocky chuckle
and a coo and a cluck
rendered by others
as wellsprings of impulse
Like straphangers in enamel
drawing overwhelming crowds
giving succinct accounts
of what went down
while pointing out
and coalescing around
the here-and-now
with know-how for now
as a gadabout
In a topsy-turvy greenhouse
lined with tiny teeth
and an untrained eye
for nearly exact copies
involving industrial espionage
carving paw feet out of troughs
with eagles for support
fairly sleepy over the years
surpassing six figures
as extravagantly avid
dashed off acumens
of abandon
synchronized out of sight
yellow-green over strokes
of ochre...
