New Wine

Updated: Oct 13, 2022

New wine is the only way

to sobriety in a drunk world.

New wine is the antidote

to frenetic fear, passed like shots

across the bar that seals graves closed.

Although the hubris of man

loudly regurgitates fear's false

remedies across saturated gullets,

they choke and are made blind.

Plunge your whole self

into the new wine that never runs dry

and gives life to clinking bones.

Herald now, outside

the cacophony of the grotto,

a new song.

It breaks

the siren's slithering spell

and rips her scales off of the eyes

of those groping in the dark.

Will we stay upon the sinking sand

or climb abreast Christ's ark?

Let them gawk and mock

at you and his flock

who loves his pages

Let them talk and balk --

who cannot hear the clock

As you dance with

your Rock of Ages

"And do not get drunk with wine, for that is debauchery, but be filled with the Spirit." Ephesians 5:18. "But others mocking said, “They are filled with new wine." Acts 2:3

Psalm 115, Revelation 18:3
