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:

Backwards Rain
unknown

Spiraling  
 1
down an endless black hole  
 2
reaching for anything to stop my fall  
 3
Gravity gone                                  
 4
as well as right and wrong                  
 5
all i can hear                                        
 6
is a booming song  
 7
Eyes  surround  
 8
staring me down  
 9
then I see the ground  
 10
with spikes all around  
 11
I cannot blink  
 12
or feel or think  
 13
Maybe I tripped and fell  
 14
straight into a well  
 15
  
 16
But I never even saw the hole...
 17
