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:

Matthew
MattPat

i experience images;
 1
they are the solidarity lost
 2
by my first surrender
 3
to senseless majesty.
 4
 
 
Eternity is
 5
Nothing, but the tides,
 6
and the seasons longing:
 7
to die ceaselessly into newness.
 8
 
 
Birth was an end
 9
to my Nothingness;
 10
and i await my seasons
 11
return to Infinity.
 12
 
 
This moment
 13
Is singular and uniform;
 14
i want repetition gone, though
 15
this finite moment is an eternal echo.
 16
