Oh, this is absolutely beautiful. I love the villanelle as a form, and this one of yours is lovely. I love the dual meaning of "I dream to slip the cage I can't disown"--as in, both dreaming in the sense of desiring to do so, and dreaming as a tool to do so.

Thank you!

*grin* I love it when my readers detect the subtle infrastructure of my poetry. You are exactly right about that bifocal meaning.
