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:

preatnava appetita(bon apetit`e)

preatnava appetita, have fun.
bon apetit`e, bloom.
play with joy,
laugh at adventure.
preatnava appetita, bon appetit`e,
live,laugh, write.
eat your heart away,
cry out your soul,
but whatever you do,
make sure that you never
stop having fun.
because when you do,
bye bye to heritge.
spirit, fun, dont let it go. please.
