David P Williams Poems
They Are Afraid Of Us, The Women
They are afraid of us, of course, the women Yet they allow us entry to their very interior.
I have cupped the butts of sea mounts in my hands and brought the fecund ocean to my lips
I Wish This Were A Sacrifice Time
I wish this were a sacrifice time a flaten tin cans and bind up paper time a Cub scout drive time A Spitfire and Helldiver time
Alongside Whitman we worked in the tents and borrowed rooms of pain and blood
Alongside Whitman we worked
in the tents and borrowed rooms
of pain and blood
Whitman comforted the dying
while I toted bedpans of nightsoil
and bundles of pus infused rags.
Not that he did not do his share
