Baudelaire recommends always to be drunk — on wine, for instance, or poetry. I consume much of the former — and would much of the latter, as well, were there more palatable examples of it.
One can become drunk on either wine or poetry, that’s true. The difference, however, is this: few vintners take pleasure in the difficulty with which their product is consumed.
Wine is served at poetry readings with a view to rendering the event more tolerable. Notably, there is not an equal but opposite example of this.
