fifteen degrees below zero
(windchill at graveside)
sound doesn’t penetrate.
the family is here.
(blessed are they that mourn)
I and Josh are windbreaks for my mother.
the honor guard waits nearby
waits patiently in the cold
to take their turn and fire at the sky.
Dad’s lucky
he is beyond the cold.
Mom is not.
I am not.
(Josh is not).
I am uncaring.
not apathetic.
ambivalent.

graveside
From my upcoming book "Gentle into that Good Night:  Poems of My Father's Passing"
Loading...
no.  not tonight.
the worse for the wine,
you are impaired
and, to be honest, I am scared
that in the morning
you will not remember.
I will be forgotten
along with the thought processes
that slid you, naked, under the sheets
and brought you to kiss me
with a certain intent.
I will, however, stay the night
and hold you, if you wish.
if in the morning
you still believe
this is a good idea,
I will not leave
until you ask me to
for I want you
and I am unimpaired.
drunk only on your beauty.

Impaired
I believe that making love to an impaired person is rape.  opportunistic.  and not romantic.
Loading...
more than words.
the magic.  tragic hopes.
the moments we barter.
merchants in the temple
where the priest sadly
shakes his head.
the barter economy
of love and passion.
copper for silver.
silver for gold.
gold for blood and fire.
desire.
ancient runes.
ancient tunes.
translated with light
that dances
barefoot.
the soft pad of feet
on cool stone
when the warm bed
makes a fine altar
for sacrifices.
the clarity of charity
in the ecclesiastical sense
where love requires
nothing.
but hopes for
everything.


William F. DeVault.  all rights reserved.
release the troubled memories that hold you in their bonds,
liberation for our pain and stain for what our merge responds.
grace.  a trace of sweetness.  musky, like dusk, jasmine and saffron.
the thermodynamics of an ancient, urgent heat, action and reaction
as the parabola of kisses misses nothing worth mention, intention
sown and reaped, moistures seep and weep and keep the tension
barely bearable.  I communicate a wordless poetry in surrender,
tender as a sacrifice to a price for bartered beauty, defender
of that which has already been given in chaste clarity and charity,
a gift to the magi who imagined us as spirits of inescapable verity.
hold nothing back not even the blackness and I will not slack
in my prescient tense of what you desire and require, no lack
of ardour and all my amomancies have become apprenticings
to your escape from the grey to lay claim to all your whims and wings.


William F. DeVault.  all rights reserved.
Grace
the title piece to my upcoming collection of seduction poetry.  a bit intense, but also at the same time, elegant.

I'm a poet. Ronin for now, making my way in the world. I don't write poetry. I don't do poetry. I coexist with it, some have even suggested I am poetry.

I can live with that. I have to. Because it is true. And that is what poetry is: Truth.
