The Good Wine is a Given

Now that your soul has asked all the easy questions

it will eat up your body

for sustenance

Pull up a chair

Unfold your napkin

Don’t deny the fork and knife

At last the feast begins

“I see today that everyone on earth
wants the answer to the same questions
but none has the language to ask it.”

A wild soul writing poetry.

  1. That is a very strange poem indeed. I’m going to have to go away and live with it for a while, I think. Lots of fractured thoughts – the wedding feast at Cana(?), but also, Hannibal Lecter made a brief appearance…

  2. Once you’ve tackled all the easy stuff… who’s going to take the World Cup, why do baseball players really need to take steroids, why do fools fall in love… then it comes down to the one, truly essential question of your life… and it’s going to take all that is within you. Or something like that. It’s a brilliant write. I may have to come back to it, Jill! But that’s my first read’s analysis… for what it’s worth.
