Please, Pearl, remember the stuff I've said about
EVAPORATING VILLANELLE FOR LABOR
They say we're essence but we're frost, bitter thrive.

on "Bracelet:" Mercari is a selling app and someone posted this very odd ad about a piece of jewelry. With so many repeating words, I couldn't resist turning it into a found ghazal that delves into the heartbreaking realities of drug addiction.
on "Labor:" The Evaporating Villanelle is a form that I invented before the pandemic, but never did much with until COVID had us all locked down. The repetition and rhyme that disappear piece by piece throughout the poem seems to work best with topics that we obsess about, or emotions that control us to some extent, like grief and anger.
