Two VLANs, One Subnet

Can you tell I'm reworking my LAN?
I have a public /29 subnet, meaning I get 6 public IPs. Amazingly
enough, I have 6 devices that could use a public IP. Perhaps even more
astounding, I on occasion have more devices that get a private IP in the
Here is how I want things to work:
ISP -- cisco -- openwrt -- LAN
cisco, openwrt, and 4 devices in the LAN have public IP addresses in the
same /29 subnet. I want openwrt to do NAT (as needed for the private
subnet), routing, and firewall.
I also want to, if possible, limit the broadcast domains so that cisco
and openwrt are separate. Therein lies the rub. Can I set up VLANs on
openwrt and still route between everybody on the same /29 subnet?
openwrt is a 6-port switch, basically. One port goes to the chip
(router), which is in turn connected to the wireless interface. The WAN
port and the other 4 ports are all on the same switch, and separated (or
not) by the VLAN configuration.
The Cisco is a beautiful thing but I want to do as little as possible

There's nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the
right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
