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:

Sunrise
dia

In the early half light morning through dormer windows,
 1
I hear the busyness of blackbirds.
 2
Like whistling barstaff polishing glasses before the start of the shift.
 3
 
 
Out through another window a cock pheasant calls with practised desperation.
 4
Seeking for a mate.
 5
 
 
And the cars roar past on the B road while the sun shines indifferently.
 6
The birds fidget and wait.
