How paradelles are born

I saw Annie Finch read yesterday afternoon at the Concord Poetry Center. It was a fun reading, and Annie read a paradelle she wrote as a valentine to her husband. I had never heard of a paradelle, but it is a crazy parody poetry form that Billy Collins invented. Of course, now that I found out about this ridiculous form, I want to try and write one.
