Deep in a Glass: Alcoholic Poetry

Cover Art by Nutmeg Nautilus, 2017

I have a new book! Deep in a Glass: Alcoholic Poetry is my first poetry collection, and two of the poems started out as blog posts: “My Danish Love, or an Ode to Vodka” and “Haiku Rosso y Bianco.”

You may find it at, Barnes and Noble (ebook only), Kobo, and the iBookstore, among others. I am very excited, after publishing nothing for several years.

Because the book is so short, and because I released two of the poems already, there is no sample download. However, you can read the wine and vodka entries here: ( and here (

My first book, No Rest: A Noir Collection is already available at the aforementioned retailers.


Haiku Rosso y Bianco

The fruit of the vine

and holiest of spirits,

grapes crushed and then aged.


Wrestle with the cork,

dust the bottle and then pour.

Life within a glass.


Redder still than blood

but not half so coppery,

sweet, dry, full-bodied.


Never white as snow

But far clearer and more pure,

sharp, sparkling, and light.


An empty bottle

signals sadness and good times.

You never forget.
