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:

Just a Fuck?

To whom do I owe this pleasure to?
This, my cock inside your pussy to?
This, my lips upon your lips to?
Do I owe it to this girl that’s riding me?
Do I owe it to the person inside of me?
Do I owe it to the host of this party?
For if it wasn’t for his planning would I have gotten any pussy?
Or should I give my thanks to this liquor that’s intoxicated my “partner?”
Am I to bow to the hormones of this teenage life?
These hormones that arouse us, and amuse us, to this, so called “fun?”
So is this girl the one?
Or is she simply just another plain, lifeless, simple little, “party fuck?”
