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?

um....

i'll write you a love poem
 1
although we've never met
 2
so i'll write you a poem hello
 3
and we'll start with that
 4
hello hello hello hello
 5
 
 
i learn a little more about you
 6
another grain of sand for the picture
 7
another spice to throw in the mixture
 8
 
 
and i chased the lightning in the clouds
 9
hoping it would illuminate you
 10
 
 
wonder is a powerful force
 11
and right now i'm full of it
 12
i'm tumbling to a new door
 13
hoping that it leads to you
 14
open it up like a curtain
 15
hello hello hello hello
 16
