Existential Wine – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

#2022 November PAD Chapbook Challenge

Day 27 27.11.22

Prompt: Write a resolution poem

Existential Wine

Sometimes the decision as to which wine
is predicated on the conscience,
which seems to float into territory complicating
my emotions about so many things that
have distilled over the years or only hours,
thoughts of childhood, the homeless, 
a recession, war, famine, comfort, and
how did I come to this very point, why now?
The wine is more existential than I initially thought,
my resolve is to press on regardless,
while mulling over the juice of my thoughts.
