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 american dream
unknown

thousands of faces
 1
of crimson tides
 2
awash the masses
 3
can never run and hide
 4
the american dream
 5
"livin' it out"
 6
speak of the devil
 7
its what its about
 8
feel an ash-soaked breeze
 9
shake the empire of nyc
 10
blinded mice scattered throughout
 11
the corridors
 12
of a newfound doubt
 13
obscene horrors
 14
independence freedom sings
 15
a resounding echo
 16
tossed in the recycle bin
 17
screams of woe
 18
become a dull din
 19
