lyrics

How you’ll weep
At the stake
As I go up
In smoke
How I’ll see you
Across the cobbled
Square
My hands tied behind
My back
Your scarf floating
Down your back
As I cough and
Choke
As the smoke wafts
And swirls
Johanna D’arc
Grey ash
That falls on your
Shoulders
Your lips
I burn Maman
I burn
For Homo Sapiens
For the lost Neanderthals
My trousers are
Aflame
My left breast
Sizzles
And bursts
I am a black carcass
I have become
The Sunday roast
That the world eats
And excretes
The lavender
Smoulders
Your rocking
Back
My Father’s
Thick farmer’s hand
On your shoulders
As you fall
At the sound
Of my screams
Though my lips
Are blistered
Beyond repair
Wax
Fat
Smoke
Air
Simmering in
The stew
Of myself
God is not
Here
God is not
There
The only wing
I see
Is the crow
Who hovers
Above the Square
