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:

the ex-girlfriend as an analogy
william

You are
 1
the example
 2
of my life.
 3
 
 
In conversation,
 4
it's always,
 5
"when she"
 6
and "how she"
 7
and "who she"
 8
and "where."
 9
 
 
My experience
 10
has all been
 11
experience
 12
with you.
 13
 
 
When I talk,
 14
I talk about
 15
what you
 16
and I --
 17
talk about
 18
you, most;
 19
 
 
you are most
 20
of what I know
 21
most about.
