On not writing a poem

I believe not even Circe
could transmute this little versie
to a poem, so I, mortal, am defeated.

But it's lodged inside my brain
and I fear it will remain
there 'till I write it down, so: now it is completed.

My only attempt at a villanelle is here. It is, admittedly, an odd example of a villanelle, but there it is. It might help to read the link explaining how it got that way.

I spent a while trying to figure out whether "barman" had some specific poetic meaning before finally figuring out what you meant.

In general I'd be happy to take requests, in that they encourage me to actually write more poetry, but I don't promise to actually follow through on any given request.

Incidentally, most of my poetry is here.
