Puttering in a Haze

" Puttering in a Haze "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " Often to a Fault "

Often to a fault
in a potential windfall
as a quirk in the tax law
with drawbacks
of exasperation
while puttering in a haze
of fading constraints
and into the ostentatious
returning of favors like lingerie
that goes without saying
as a starting place
greatly outnumbering paintings
in a constant deluge of polarizing faces
Legendarily intense
terrifyingly oversized
with indecipherable movie rights
no longer ungodly
in a silly costume
as an option
while leaping off the pages
of self-identification
as a former curator
after battling a plague
with a blurb as an explanation
of conflict or shame centuries later
Collapsing time and space
as a cross-legged fall from grace
with intoxicating scarification
and bristling ostentation
as an outcrop of conglomerates
besotted by bygone
brachiopods as fossils...
