Homemade Wine~by Paul Lenzi



Homemade Wine


Painting by Marlina Vera

pressing of the grape
ancestral imperative
yielding hospitality
lifeblood of family
immortal elixir
congenial of body

with the last vivid
personal label affixed
a season of bottles
lay corked in their racks
who will be honored
with first ruby glass

only a priest of the
purple hand brotherhood



From my book Range of Motion
