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?

no one cares that you want to die

flashing,imminent  death
 7
the unbearable shame

11:30 nearly there

feelings flood
 10
cut for the blood
 11
now grab the chair
 12
 
 
11:45 find the rope
 13
tie it to the rotten bedsits shadeless light
 14
this is the end, no hope
 15
 
 
12pm the hour is upon us
 16
kick the chair
 17
the rope strings up
 18
 
 
oh shit, oh shite
 19
on the clocks deadly strike...

...the rope snaps
