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:

As a corpse

As a Corpse
In a bed
My sweet
Without a tweet
Is dead.
My canary
In this scenery
So beautifullly
She is Stabbed
By this morning.
No morning
But subtle smile
Around the tail of
Yellow peak
-The beak.
Where the peak stands,
Cannot pick
Fruit of peace
For hollow at the middle
-Deep abyss.
Dare not to peep
Into apparent black
-parent of silence
For only black
Fills this blank.
My sweet,
Give me a tweet
For I really want
To bury you
As a corpse.
