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?

New York City
lossforwords

You’re on a different side of the United States
 1
With different trees
 2
It’s a whole different world
 3
With different stories
 4
 
 
You’re in a different city
 5
With different mountains
 6
With different sounds
 7
And time square fountains
 8
 
 
Your lights are out
 9
My lights are one
 10
I see the stars
 11
You see the sun
 12
Don’t mean to brag
 13
But you meant the most
 14
There’s just too much
 15
In the middle of our coasts
 16
 
 
You’re a special girl
 17
One the opposite side
 18
We talk on the phone
 19
Yet I can’t see your eyes
 20
