Around the Garden

Posted in villanelle by maggie on 2009/05/10

Wait for me behind the hedge
around the garden.
(I'm fine.  I'm just a bit on edge.)

Kidnapped undertones allege
crackdowns will harden.
Wait for me behind the hedge.

Inside contact rams a wedge
through torture's cordon.
(I'm fine.  I'm just a bit on edge.)

Brutal interrogations dredge
detention's burden.
Wait for me behind the hedge.

Position poise near the ledge.
Sideswipe the warden.
(I'm fine.  I'm just a bit on edge.)

A scab marks our determined pledge,
a scar our pardon.
Wait for me behind the hedge.
(I'm fine.  I'm just a bit on edge.)
