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:

Damage
blinddarksun

The elbow snaps backward
 1
crunching bone and tearing muscle
 2
The hand looses control
 3
goes limp
 4
fingers dangling in 85 mile per hour wind
 5
The arm is severed at the elbow
 6
blood splashes and dies to a mist
 7
showering onlookers and cloaked chosen few
 8
in seizure state positions
 9
The Image a grand mal scale
 10
rows of beloved followers
 11
claim to be blessed
 12
spilling the lambs blood
 13
Crimson Cheers
 14
a toast to the appendage
 15
each finger represents a day of sacrifice
 16
The diluted atmosphere bellows a high
 17
a journey to free the conscious of imprisonment and shed the label of
 18
Cast Away
 19
