Holy Hunger

(A Salute to Emily Dickinson)

I taste a liquor never brewed
In structured vats of men
Not all the tankards ever filled
Could reign this nectar in

Inebriate of Christ am I
His words I’m sipping from
Of life, of love, of power
Drunken worlds to overcome

When clergy slips and cannot rise
When churches close their door
I shall not move toward recant
I shall but drink the more

Till angels lay aside their song
Till saints the rainbows shun
This fervent tippler ever stays
to lean against the Son!
