Fortified Villanelle

Fortified Middle Class Villanelle

Our moats neatly prune you away
Hedged streets mown from everyday slabs –
The curtain gate’s drawn, no entry.

The high concrete stairs are still grey
Blocks us up in the world left drab,
The moats neatly prune you away.

We prod: search for alleyways
To castles: from which we can stab,
Yet curtain gate’s drawn, no entry…
