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?

Finally Blooming

This sweety’s like a CD
 1
Whose music is sunny
 2
Bright shine
 3
Finely designed
 4
Cute as a bunny
 5
Stupid and crummy
 6
When compared to this dope honey
 7
Funny joke how she chose a no money, broke dummy
 8
Yummy from the
 9
Tummy to delicate vertebrae
 10
What elegant words of clay should I sculpt for her today?
 11
Make sure the verse is airy
 12
Wouldn’t want to serve dismay
 13
Though she’s perfect from her nurtured curves
 14
To her nervous sway
 15
The urgent way she jerks and turns her head in slight annoyance
 16
And the type of poise she maintains while her eyes flick in avoidance
 17
Of the stare that I bear brings the dance of a flame
 18
To the back of my brain while the trance leaves me tame
 19
Perhaps her soles have coals choreograph
 20
But when I ask her of this she does nothing more than laugh
 21
A quarter past our last kiss
 22
By an hour I’ll be sour
 23
In the absence of the sweetness of my fruit bearing flower
 24
