Drink deeply

Burque wordsmith Hosho McCreesh doesn’t have much use for coconut margaritas. “‘I wouldn't be caught dead/ drinking that shit,’ you said/ to him just about every time/ he ordered one,” the narrator of one poem recalls. And yet. “And yet, ever since he died,/ you go, twice a year, once on/ his birthday, and once on the 4th,/ to get one.” By turns poignant, funny, myth-making and self-deprecating, A Deep and Gorgeous Thirst slurps down life by the bottle-full and pukes it back up the next morning, more than a little wiser for the wear. Catch up with the man and legend-in-the-making at Bookworks (4022 Rio Grande NW) on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at 7pm, and check out our review from last December at alibi.com/link/15357.
