ViniVitiVici
Anthony Beal, American poet


An impassioned press of skin
Wrings prestigious blood
From crows, from fog, from thunder gods,
Bacchanalia black and sublime.
Echoes of days seized by the light of stars
Lift their worldly voices anew,
Calling forth luscious ghosts
Like odes to earth and sky.
Sanguine muses dip their pens
In inkwells ancient and crimson,
And green
As the vines that unfold in their footprints.
Composing their way
Across the palate,
They pause for pictures from time to time,
Then move on,
Singing madrigals to raisin and berry and oak,
To beds of straw, to fire and ice.
I swallow them whole before singing back.
