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?

Violin
MASzzz

I am out of practice
 1
Dull
 2
and scratchy
 3
but as I pick you up
 4
Your still gleaming
 5
 
 
I strum a few out of tune
 6
Strums
 7
and tilt you down
 8
Miss the tune and
 9
Beat
 10
Making everyone
 11
Cringe
 12
but you feel
 13
As a old friend
 14
Might feel
 15
One Ive had a bit to many fights with
 16
That doesn't matter though
 17
As I rip through
 18
Slow songs
 19
and drag through
 20
Fast tunes
 21
On your pathetic
 22
Gleaming self
 23
Littered with music
 24
