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:

This kid named Peter once said to me, “You know everything is going to be ok right?”
Luxy

I bought happiness,
 1
with the rest of my money.

“Honey,
 3
did anyone ever tell you
 4
everything will be ok?
 5
 
 
Free bread guy!
 6
Maybe a pawn shop?
 7
To sell heartache?
 8
A bath, a pill, two two,
 9
and three three,
 10
with me me
 11
forgetting
 12
a little longer please,
 13
I’m broken into four
 14
and the music
 15
isn’t playing anymore.
