Author Note: Welcome to my second official villanelle since I graduated university. It's a contest piece, written for last month's "Bubbles' Art & Writing Contest" over on the Fusionfall Retro forums. I wrote this in an hour, and it deserved not to win. I had other things on my mind during the contest period. It's a thing. There is more to come.

- Remember Me Never (10/2/2019)


The streets of Downtown were doused by rain,
Dexter noted from atop the highest building in City Station,
but no one was awake enough to complain.

The excitement of the "End of Summer" part was beginning to wane,
after an afternoon filled with elation.
The streets of Downtown were doused by rain.

Dexter didn't mind being the one to pour money down the figurative drain,
especially when he was able to move the party to such a prime location,
but no one was awake enough to complain.

Though many thought him a recluse, he did like to entertain,
But the day's setbacks did give him moments of frustration.
The streets of Downtown were doused by rain.

His personal team was able to save all the decorations before he could loudly complain,
and he was able to adjust the theme thanks to the watery inspiration,
but no one was awake enough to complain.

After a long day of celebrating summer's end, the attendees could barely refrain
from setting up an impromptu slumber party, away from the rainy sensation.
The streets of Downtown were doused by rain,
but no one was awake enough to complain.
