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:

I-Volutionary
jenn

There are sunken foundations
 1
and primal traces of
 2
uncounted societies
 3
amongst the scattered debris
 4
of long
 5
discarded incarnations
 6
through which the animal
 7
I once was
 8
struggled to get here
 9
now
 10
where I am.
 11
 
 
It seems only
 12
moments ago
 13
I cast
 14
myself gasping upon
 15
a rippled
 16
body of sand
 17
crowning an ocean
 18
making unceasing
 19
love
 20
to the land.
 21
