Poor little mama boy!!

Never read so many words of self-complaisance.

You must think very highly of yourself....

It shows that you can write maudli-ee-en stuff.

Now go get a drink and make a man of yourself.

A villanelle is a poem of nineteen lines

I saw that:

"Duchamp's urinal is the wellspring of her rage", in which there must, MUST, be a poem somehow. Perhaps a villanelle.

Then I researched and found that:

The Art of the Villanelle

A villanelle is a poem of nineteen lines, arranged in six stanzas. This poetic style is named for the French poet Francois Villon (1431-1474). François Villon was a French poet, thief, and general vagabond. He is perhaps best known for the writings he penned while in prison. Born of poor folk, his father died when he was young. He lived a hardscrabble life among the wilder youth of the university of Paris. He got into trouble for various quarrels involving knives, and for robbing churches. Troubled though he was, his keen mind invented the villanelle, a poetic form that was particularly well-suited to the French language.

It is more difficult to write a good villanelle in English, but the Dylan Thomas poem "Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night" is a fine example of the style, as is "The House on the Hill" by Edwin Arlington Robinson. Sylvia Plath experimented with villanelles in her college days, enjoying the form's inherent challenges.
