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:

Die soon
4st7lb

We move
 1
silently among the living
 2
miles upon miles
 3
we leech the life weve never been given
 4
 
 
downtown between the trestles
 5
our souls sold long ago
 6
here bright spring flowers never bloom
 7
and we all die soon
 8
 
 
afraid to go back
 9
and pace around the house
 10
someone is knocking at an unanswered door
 11
and I'm afraid
 12
