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?

Random Poem:

Sunday morning
gallard

The rattle of the late night railway stock
 1
keeps you on your toes,
 2
the intent hurriedness of a
 3
midnight vehicle,
 4
yet you're not asleep
 5
your mind is a salesroom of burden
 6
salvation never comes quick
 7
never like toothpaste.
 8
 
 
Before retiring to bed
 9
you already know life will still be
 10
the hard squeeze
 11
discordant sound and equivocation ad naseum
 12
