Evening Out

" Evening Out "

by Suzán Jiván

Made of folded steel
encased in concrete
overcoated by black stucco
in an upstairs space

evening out
in a house plan
with fragments
of get aways
cast in place

exposing the ancient
adjacent separations
weaving through medieval
alleyways like past days
masquerading as today

within ill-placed stairways
and constrained layouts
at the risk of collapse
in unmitigated layers

right in the historic core
along with a cannon ball
replete with its bomb shards
in oak and terra cotta

redesigned by desire
found outside on site
while dining
beneath a climbing
white wisteria vine...
