April Villanelle

My name is Jamie Lee Hamann and I started sharing poetry articles back in 2013. Every year I share a poem a day in April.

April Villanelle

We did not discuss rules

we firmly planted them

as brand fresh from fire.


To start without the tools

our voice boxes one numb

we did not discuss roles.


We played as our own fools

like stone drunk on a Rum

as brand fresh from fire.


Calculate struggle pools

upon a silent sum

we did not discuss roles.


So stubborn as two mules

finally overcome

as brand fresh from fire.


Still we stand upon cruels

both strung tight like snare drum

we did not discuss rules

as brand fresh from fire.
