spiral

wine the colour of day
wine the colour of night
wine deep purple
o topaz blood

wine:
starlit son
of earth
wine, smooth
as a golden sword
wine like a spiral seashell

wondrous
loving
marine
unconfinable in one glass
or one song, or drunk alone:
choral, gregarious
and always

shared

from Neruda, To wine, transl. Tom Davis
