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:

Banding Mobius
shattered

We each are our own ocean,
 1
Endless doth we seem,
 2
Intimately connected,
 3
Boarded in this dream.
 4
The deep of one raised to the sky
 5
From warmth of other rays,
 6
Brightens not the other's sun,
 7
nor makes this one turn gray.
 8
Instead the inverse renders true,
 9
This sky sees no more rain.
 10
Clouds migrate to the other one,
 11
For here they cry their pain.
 12
