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:

goodbye, acapulco
catch-22

you look good i could melt
 1
nights you shine
 2
stills the waves of my ocean
 3
 
 
i can be hot near you
 4
nothing like failed serenades,
 5
poetically masked
 6
my martini dries
 7
 
 
days will be gone soon
 8
i'll come back, mi querido
 9
 
 
grab me
 10
 
 
mess my tides, la chiapaneca
 11
