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:

THE VIEW FROM MY SOAPBOX
_ryan_

can i sit idly by
 1
while this reality consumes me
 2
convenient friends
 3
offer advice from a fortune cookie;
 4
it is remarkably accurate
 5
 
 
standing on my soapbox
 6
trying to find direction
 7
overanalyze the fork i have come to
 8
still contemplating as i impulsively choose
 9
the path in most plain view
 10
i will take any assault in stride
 11
but the path is still unclear
 12
with no footprints to follow
 13
where do i go from here...
 14
