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 red dress technique
bambam

I really like you
 1
but you articulate poorly
 2
in the wrong translation
 3
of my language
 4
so lets just be friends
 5
I need someone who will throw the noise into their brain like I do
 6
someone to slap me
 7
I need to check up on reality
 8
the itch inside your foot
 9
needs to be my safety
 10
so I can sleep at night
 11
I'll return the favor
 12
We can share beds too
 13
and call it a night
 14
