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?

Fall's Falling Out
lieskilllies

This fall,
 1
let me tell you
 2
what I plan
 3
on planning
 4
on doing -
 5
 
 
I'm going to eat the leaves
 6
and spit the breeze from branch to branch.
 7
Back to back we'll stand.
 8
I have hopes
 9
to become a
 10
brand new man.
 11
 
 
Now,
 12
whether I do or not,
 13
well,
 14
that's for another
 15
time.
 16
 
 
I'll tell souls of
 17
soles worn from
 18
time traveled by
 19
talking off tourniquets
 20
and watching my old best friends
 21
blaze
 22
and
 23
blaze
 24
and.
 25
 
 
Where was I?
 26
Even Autumn,
 27
presents in hand
 28
(Present in hand),
 29
can't answer that for me.
 30
And throughout every season,
 31
every Season knows that
 32
I can't do it for myself.
 33
