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?

Peace of Mind
 1
is
 2
nothing
 3
but a self conscious
 4
woman
 5
giving a man
 6
she admires
 7
on
 8
a first date,
 9
mix signals,
 10
bitch defenses
 11
and games
 12
to determine
 13
if he
 14
is indeed
 15
" THE MAN".
 16
 
 
Yet,
 17
he does not
 18
get rattled
 19
and like
 20
a simple sailor,
 21
whethers
 22
the storm
 23
and eventually
 24
enjoys the calm
 25
serenity
 26
of the sea.
