One-Point Villanelle to Dan

So named because it was written as extra credit for English 102.

 

One-Point Villanelle to Dan  

 

I love this guy a whole, whole lot.

I want my name to be Konviser.

But he’s refined, and I am not.

 

I’d have his baby like a shot, 

I wouldn’t tell you any lies, sir,

I love this guy a whole, whole lot.

 

He doesn’t care that I’m a sot

(Recovered) and own stock in Pfizer,

But he’s refined and I am not.

 

I know one heart is all I’ve got, 

But knowing, I am none the wiser —

I love this guy a whole, whole lot.

 

He reads aloud to me, Great Scott!

Sappho and Hemingway and Dreiser.

But he’s refined, and I am not.

 

A polished gal, as like as not, 

He’ll marry someday, and he’ll prize her!

I love this guy a whole, whole lot,

But he’s refined, and I am not.
