Poem: Fine Wine 


Wine

should be

savored like

a grand epic

filtered throughout with

barely audible hints

of blackberry and currant

joined among swirls of licorice.

A dressed up ballroom duo, noshing

creamy avocado wedges placed a-

top crispy crackers heaped with slices of

sharp, orange cheddar from Wisconsin

accompanied by a sweet good

looking, Filipino man

that croons steamy love songs

to pale earthy girls

beneath moon's blush

nightly, on

a cruise

ship.

  • Follow that Spark: Brooklyn Designer Turns Farm Visit into Book that Gives Back

    In August, Brooklyn-based digital designer Michelle Layne Lawson read an article on Chronogram's website about Tomorrow, Tomorrow, a 150-acre farm animal sanctuary in Columbia County that was struggling to raise funds to stay afloat. Within a few days, Lawson was on her way up to Hudson to visit the farm. And what began as casual cute animal pics turned into a coffee table book that is being sold to raise funds for the sanctuary and a renewed sense of creative vocation. Don't mind us, we're just sobbing over here.
