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:

Blister in the Sun
MywrdsRmyAiR

the sun sizzles  
 1
flesh exposed on my  
 2
bare cheeks.  
 3
    
 4
bloodshot eyes
 5
     burn in agony;
 6
sensitive to light.
 7
sandpaper on lens.
 8
    
 9
     Blister;
 10
my lip swells sizes  
 11
too large.  
 12
Sun makes shed my  
 13
laziness of treatment.  
 14
    
 15
crisped to perfection,  
 16
i've cooked into Crimson.
