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:

The You
Cutio

Your empty box of smokes
 1
dropped on my floor.
 2
Your wine you couldn't drink
 3
the night before.
 4
Your peaceful slumber, just
 5
your shoulders bare.
 6
Your garb you leave behind,
 7
my clothes you wear.
 8
 
 
The way you will not be the
 9
first to sleep.
 10
The way your eyes change
 11
when you act deep.
 12
The way I grew to love your
 13
sombre art.
 14
The way you call me your
 15
best friend my heart
 16
breaks.
