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:

Ted Snit's House of Ill Repute (edited)
unknown

Her smile harpooned my heart
 1
and reeled me to the comfy chair
 2
where once ensconced I lolled with
 3
nostrils flared, when suddenly
 4
a masked man loomed
 5
above my beard
 6
 
 
and set about me
 7
with sweet Becky at his call,
 8
his gangster's moll, they worked
 9
me over, blood did sprawl
 10
for twenty minutes, grunting sounds
 11
 
 
I lost two teeth, was robbed
 12
of all my pounds.
 13
 
 
They must be mad to think
 14
in six months time that i'll return
 15
to scene of crime.
