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?

Aaahhhmmaaayyyyttt
CrunchyWeta

Cleaning washing vacuuming the mind, changing the nappies of thought, smoking time away.
 1
 
 
A tidy house is a tidy mind, fighting the forces of chaos in my domain is tiring. Order over time.
 2
 
 
Put on a mixed lot of socks, yesterdays shirt until todays shower, burn wood. Chaos over order.
 3
 
 
No thing never changes ... maybe death... Lifes great multicoloured threads wend thier weft.
 4
 
 
... and unravel for all minds to move through, loosely, lost, finding, til we are parted. Endarkened.
