The Good Wine

No one really cares that it was on the third day
and there were six stone waterpots able to hold
twenty or thirty gallons each. Those are simply
details the beloved apostle used to tip the occasion
toward its toast, toward the one I AM statement
the sober commentators have always missed.

Only after a few gleaming cups at Cana would
guests be honest enough to hear among all the
revelry what the son of Mary actually meant:

I AM the good wine, kept until now.
Now is the earth’s privileged season.
Now is the beginning of my pouring out.

–John Blase
