Third Poet · by James Broughton
This cup contains an unearthly nectar
habitually served at the wedding of wizards.
It is compounded by local seraphs and satyrs
from apricotroot appleheart and plumtail
poppybrine cashewegg and salmonbreast
larksweat lionspray and mothsperm
distilled in the pearly honeys of the moon.
It contains the essence of spirits in delight:
the delicious secret of the Great Intoxication.
Everyone may risk one sip. Serve it forth!
