A short poem I worte after reading an article about the auctioning off of Natalie Barney's effects after her death in 1972

L’Amazone

In a nightgown

pristine white satin

they laid her to rest

a sprig of ivy laced

between fingers grown old

a lover’s picture

upon her breast

one of many

devoted throughout.

20 rue Jacob

mystical in the brilliant sun

her faithful gather

to bid farewell

to their goddess

 

their muse

 

l’Amazone.

 

Paintings by the famous

of the famous

friends…lovers

books

signed with words

of adoration

love

desire

obsession.

 

lamps

rugs

sofas

tables

a blue bed – Louis XV

studded with white

huge and ornate

a first love

lying on Violet sheets

Dropped

obscenely against a wall…

 

a lifetime reduced

to

the auctioneer’s call.
