Sometimes a wild god comes to the table.
He is awkward and does not know the ways
Of porcelain, of fork and mustard and silver.
His voice makes vinegar from wine.

The book of the poem, Sometimes a Wild God, by Tom Hirons, with a cover illustration by Rima Staines.

Written with the incantatory power of an old hymn, and the urgency of a world on its side, sometimes a wild god is a wake-up call for troubled times. With an animal magic reminiscent of the work of Ted Hughes and Gary Snyder, sometimes a wild god is a haunting, heart-breaking tribute to the wildness in us and the journey we each might take to re-find it. — Sylvia V. Linsteadt (author OUR LADY OF THE DARK COUNTRY and TATTERDEMALION)

You can read (and buy) this poem and others at Tom's website and find out more about Rima and her art at her own website.
