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:

Subterranean Child
dukes

Mmm
 1
 
 
Give me that sweet sour of the south
 2
Let me lie in its tanned yellows
 3
Set me free in that broken summer air
 4
 
 
Give me the cool depths of the city
 5
Let me bathe in the heavy sweat
 6
Set me loose in dark corners of the hunger
 7
 
 
Give me the mediums of home
 8
Let me tear in the serenity of comfort
 9
Set me apart from the crowds of billions
 10
 
 
Give me it all
 11
 
 
Mmm
 12
