Description

Beer was designed, carved, written, and printed in March of 2013. This is a two-color print. The pull tab image is a hand-carved linocut. The text was printed with vintage wood and lead type. The words read:

DRINK THE CITY UP
DRINK THE CITY DOWN

And all the inmates sing,
“Dive headfirst into foam, into raindrops
tumbling, into bass tones thumping,
into smokestacks steaming, headlines
declaring, taillights glaring, soup lines
growing, curse words shouting, blessings
singing, steel spans crossing saltwater,
asphalt stretching southward, shoulders
bumping, faces grinning, doorways
beckoning with the offer of one more
deal, one more laugh, one more chance.”
