Poetry Introduction : Poetry by Alice Shapiro and "Life: Descending/Ascending."

Poetry Beginning : Succulent sweet grape


sip its essence
a balm for the gut
slight shriveling of clarity
tingling tongue
loosed tongue.

From a mountain vista
nudged carefully into a crook
of sun-warmed rocks
I grasped my knees
looked down upon rippling blue waters,
sucked in an orgy of crisp, cool air.

A passionate life
sunk in drink
and a drunken view of nature
share common roots
like twin children
from one fertile womb.
