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:

i'm not trying to hurt you, the truth is.
unknown

forgive me if i'm blunt
 1
but why do you continue to be someone else?
 2
 
 
changing your name
 3
like it's a password
 4
while we all sit idly by
 5
cursing the beard you never could grow
 6
 
 
sending you gifts
 7
like cotton and candy
 8
but not cotton candy
 9
which would actually fit
 10
 
 
you love that shit
 11
 
 
the circus
 12
the drama-
 13
the housewives of any damn city
 14
 
 
really, you're just a little girl
 15
who never got to dance with daddy
 16
