from THE LOST CANADIAN, VOL. 2 ‘The Myth Of Liberation’

You became the man
you always wanted to marry
I could not long for you
as the woman you tried to bury
Now there are no choices
open anywhere
in mangers or in stables

So you join the women’s club
with their venom to feel as one, among
the defeminized angels of love
abandoning even the sacred heart
you mean to carry in the dark
Perhaps forever, Joan of Arc
that would not still the many voices
