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:

workplace affair
unknown

i open the door
 1
  he opens up his need to talk
 2
 
 
to me
 3
  about her
 4
 
 
  of the corridor
 5
where they pass and nod
 6
at least ten times a day
 7
 
 
where rest breaks
 8
invite intimate conversations
 9
 
 
where the noise of the coffee machine
 10
has became their 'special' song
 11
 
 
which keeps him awake
 12
with thoughts of her
 13
 
 
she is the love of his life
 14
  he says, his dreams of me
 15
  were never so grand
 16
