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:

there's a porsche on your dick but you drive a fucking kia
unknown

like a well oiled piston
 1
i ascend and descend
 2
without delay.
 3
 
 
eyes locked on me
 4
for once
 5
he smiles proudly
 6
as if he is experiencing
 7
the pinnacle of German
 8
engineering.
 9
 
 
sometimes i act possessed
 10
go from angel to addict
 11
in six seconds or less
 12
which usually motivates
 13
his hands to smooth my hair
 14
with a tenderness
 15
rarely expressed and
 16
guarantee a twenty on the dresser
 17
 
 
before i rinse.
 18
 
 
leaves
 19
nothing to unconvince me
 20
he always likes me more
 21
when i am silent.
 22
