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:

Drunkenness
Mali

The drunken shell of a man
 1
following his own curvy speech
 2
sadly remembers all faults combined
 3
while he mimicks the movement of the key.
 4
 
 
As the day renews, this shell of a man
 5
burrows his head and avoids
 6
the keyhole to his shallow grave
 7
clutching the pockets where nothing remains.
