Poetry at the Post: Sipping a Negroni in Sorrento

In the Grips of a Sickness Transmitted by Wolves

Sorrento, at night the long fingers of your orange lights
Prick me in the sizzling streets, where the pinnacles
Of other people ring tinny and papier-mâché…



I’ve been drooling this week over the reissue of a special edition by epicurious on the food and wine of Italy. Not only are there great photos. recipes and regional info, but there is a list of restaurants and cafes to try when traveling—including links to their websites, like the Fauno Bar in Sorrento which according to epicurious writers is a good place to sip on a Negroni as you wait for your ferry to Capri (and read a poem by Monica Ferrell.)
