A villanelle ode to urban art...

slosh-clack shake spray paint mists back street
hissing splashes vibrant palette
fervent frenzy sizzles concrete

all are equal, this ain't wall street
race non-issue, nameless talent
slosh-clack shake spray paint mists back street

bouncing bobbing to that dope beat
mouthing drake, her tongue a mallet
fervent frenzy sizzles concrete

powered people call her deadbeat
fuck the blowhards on the ballot
slosh-clack shake spray paint mists back street

rage against machine on repeat
thundered words beat heart like rabbit
fervent frenzy sizzles concrete

tearing rebel eyes now retreat
raging emo packed on pallet
slosh-clack shake spray paint mists back street
fervent frenzy sizzles concrete

Villanelle
Rhyme: A1 b A2 / a b A1 / a b A2 / a b A1 / a b A2 / a b A1 A2
Meter: trochaic tetrameter

What a girl! Amazing work, beautiful, heartfelt, while meeting the complex demands of a particular format. The work of no ordinary person.
