Rooted at Center Stage

" Rooted at Center Stage "

by Suzán Jiván

Performed on YouTube
as, " Clearly Over
a Tidy Churn "

Clearly over a tidy churn
with terse drumming
and plenty to work with
as layers of artifice
and cross-hatched
accents to match
finding traction
with flickering
swelling with rain
rooted at center stage
On a woody peg, naked
in cross section with scented edges
silvery when fresh, dense
and spirelike attaining heights
widely triangular, pyramidal and lacy
with raised scars bracketed and bent backwards blackened with age
Borne in pairs, wingless
cone bearing, silver haired
ovoid acorns, scaly cups
rough, pubescent shrub
rusty, stubby, lustrous
southern, curled under...
