Truth in Wine (Sunday 02-19-17)

by Rhiannon Keneally

Age Group: Adult



Level now, calmer
But I’m unsettled
I took a taste

A tiny taste
Of abandoned fury,
Of the frenetic divine

Divine?
More like demon possessed
Or Gods’ cursed

Time then
Was contorted
And hazy

Of too much vodka,
Fueling threads
Of devastation

Pushed over the final ledge
Into furious rages
And sadistic spearing

Chaotic reeling
With wild accusations
And impalement upon iron spikes

On nineteen birthdays
With too many between,
Too green and tender

In vino, veritas,
Out the truth came
In self-defense

And truth opened wide
Doors of unease, disquiet,
And undeniable proof

Proof of inner fiends running rampant,
Neurosis spinning heedless,
Circling raptors prowling

Proof of the ever-present
Reek of death
And destruction

The reek of war,
Of decay and putrefaction,
Of the dance of quivering survival

Unprotected,
Wreckage adrift
Upon my iron thorns and glass

Kali-Ma dancing
And Morrigan in flight
Must have the remedy

The remedy
I don’t possess,
Of the armor plating

Of sinuous asylums,
Of knowing how to poise
In dance and flight

Flights, fights,
Wonders, wanders
In lunacy

Laughing,
Delight at such foolishness
Of truth told in wine




Author's Notes: A version of this was actually written the week of February 19th, but I physically could not open it. It was so... raw and unfiltered by pure rage and anger that I, as an empath, literally need five of my best grounding stones just to scroll past the title. Hence, this version. A better, more grounded poem.
