Untitled Villanelle

I ended up with an eyebrow ring but no law degree. Not that the persona is me, but just sayin’. It is definitely funny taking a look back at what I was writing 12-14 years ago…

Untitled Villanelle

When we finally meet again I plan to be
As distantly different as I possibly can,
As far out as I can go on the edge of me.

I’ll have hair shades darker, eyes that see
deeper, new perfume and a mastery of Zen
when we finally meet again. I plan to be

as wise, rich, outrageous and free
as I am not now. Unrecognizable times ten,
as far out as I can go on the edge of me.

I’ll have an eyebrow ring and a law degree,
two homes, two dogs and a way with men
when we finally meet again. I plan to be

More womanly, better and nicer than she
could ever be. Will you like me then,
as far out as I can go on the edge of me.

I want you blasted with newness til you can’t see.
But if you look, I want you to know where I am.
So when we meet again I plan to be
As far out as I can go on the edge of me.
