I Joanne D’arc
I saw an angel once
My Fathers garden
He landed among the
The bees
And ever after the
Smell of crushed lavender
Brought me to my knees
When they burned me at the stake
I carried a sprig of lavender
In between my breasts
Much was made of my illiteracy
My cross dressing
I could read
I read the whole world
In an angels’ wings
Ethereal tongues
He gave me
I could write too
My signature is there
I never went to school
The breasts
After the angel in the garden
I could do all these things
But all I ever wanted
Was a pair of dragonfly wings
To fly up and away
To see Domeney from the air
To sit on a cloud
Watch the cows in the field
We had fifty acres
The church backed onto my house
I never cared for mass
Though I liked the smell of incense
And the songs

And the little king
With his crown
Interbred boy
Pale from lack
Of sun
Spoilt bitter moon
In his robes
And his jewels
The cathedral and
The monks singing
Where was he when
I went up in
Flames to my maker.
