Poetry Critical 2.0

Hey guys, Donald here.

In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.

But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

Dysfunctional Chronology in Scarlet
bettalpha

A life of absolute neccessity, watches time
 1
backpack across itself, the cat slipped on
 2
 
 
the wave whilst waiting for the tortured souls of the
 3
dead, look at them dance towards the sunset, the
 4
 
 
faraway gets farther, but the wave always returns
 5
to lick your moustache, I've seen death
 6
 
 
face to face, face of love, scarlet with hanging ears
 7
in the expanding desert
 8
 
 
she is green, blind and demanding, sadly she has
 9
no friends who are worth the
 10
 
 
effort to speak to, she is very tough, like a
 11
cockerel, but her wings are black, she
 12
 
 
often changes lovers, she prostitutes herself for
 13
some and sells herself to the,
 14
 
 
man who gambles the most money, on a red lucky
 15
number seven bus.
