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:

low head room
Inuki

hi there,
 1
your impossible homework
 2
failure to be backwards compatible;
 3
someone brought bagels to work.
 4
 
 
meek man
 5
skeletal man, bony and spiralling ever upwards
 6
hates the ritz.
 7
 
 
we fly over skyscrapers,
 8
your hair, a leathal weapon
 9
staring down
 10
at all the overly made up
 11
putas, with mini skirts
 12
and rain bonnets.
 13
 
 
your mom is nice
 14
wrapped in three layers of cellophane
 15
singing the blues
 16
lounging on a sexy black piano
 17
in the upside down room.
 18
 
 
in this crowded mound of earth,
 19
in this haystack
 20
where some make hell and harmony,
 21
mother nature's many faces
 22
crease as she smiles
 23
her fatsuit attempting to encapsulate
 24
all the lions
 25
and imitation jungle lords.
 26
 
 
i'm trying to shut up
 27
                         out
 28
                         against
 29
but i think
 30
i will suffer
 31
a denial of service attack.
 32
