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?

Transmutations
Kashmir

say you love someone
 1
I say you love, love;
 2
lust or emotion
 3
brands scarred skin
 4
 
 
dragging your feet
 5
pursuing a thief
 6
Grail of Affection
 7
familiar grief
 8
Into the mist, it disappears
 9
 
 
find another Vessel,
 10
to place your tears
 11
 
 
the Nightshade's poison, strong
 12
drink it in my stead
 13
or see the mirrored self
 14
a seed grows
 15
in this place that you have bled
 16
 
 
from this seed
 17
grows not a tree
 18
but an open door,
 19
deservedly
 20
