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:

Great Wall

Like a "gwei loh" outside the kingdom
is how I feel
everytime my "tng nang" friends
talk amongst themselves
in their mother tongue
as we sit and dine
at the same table.
But we do not share a meal
for words have built
a Great Wall.
