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
More like demon possessed
Or Gods’ cursed
Of too much vodka,
Pushed over the final ledge
Into furious rages
And sadistic spearing
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
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
The reek of war,
Of decay and putrefaction,
Of the dance of quivering survival
Upon my iron thorns and glass
And Morrigan in flight
Must have the remedy
I don’t possess,
Of the armor plating
Of sinuous asylums,
Of knowing how to poise
In dance and flight
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.
