that man

he was a woman, with cropped hair and cobweb words

that illiterate woman

she fought a court to remain single she in drag

brought men to war

horse to water

they drank they drank deep

that virgin won a war dressed in a white

that peasant commanded a dauphin

and he obeyed like a dog

that girl at nineteen she became ash

before her own funeral

that life

that swift.
