the ultimate poetry wine book

How did I forget about Joseph Mills’ Angels, Thieves, and Winemakers (Press 53, 2008)? If you like wine and poetry, then this is the book to get. It’s a collection of poems about wine, wine making, wine drinkers, and drinking wine. It’s a fun book.//

    I have a poem about wine you might want to feature. It’s called Reading Parker, based on phrases used by Robert Parker to describe wine, and it’s in my new book from BOA Editions, Chaos is the New Calm.

    Reading Parker

    The whites taste of anise, quinine,
    quartz, pears left to bloom in
    Provencal sun—reds masculine,
    broad-shouldered and hedonistic
    in a superexpressive road tar
    candied red cherry kind of way

    unlike the slow road to Beaune
    this winter afternoon, the only
    smell the Opel’s heater on our feet
    as we drive into a life we hope
    will look like this: sun-drenched
    gravel covering a base of chalk,
    what the earth is made of here
    that makes its wine last so long.
