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?

encouragement, i guess
Nicholai36

thirteen billion years ago
 1
a fist flew and broke a nose
 2
hearts slept
 3
lips met and
 4
houses fell in riven rows
 5
 
 
thirteen billion years ago
 6
you're breathing
 7
speaking moment
 8
into life
 9
eons rife with pride and sweet atonement
 10
 
 
thirteen billion years ago
 11
you'll learn what was made
 12
what ripples of mind echoed
 13
out of a soul
 14
fated for that towards which it strove
 15
 
 
you are the world, the world is you
 16
take care, the only true goodbye
 17
