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:

Fair, Fleeting Devotion
Cach

ill set myself free  
 1
break these chains  
 2
choking my throat  
 3
making my frail body
 4
double in half  
 5
straining to inhale the foulness    
 6
of life up here in hell  
 7
 
 
i want to grasp the thing i hate
 8
make it crumble at my touch
 9
  
 10
scorched flesh    
 11
seared heart
 12
dangling limply
 13
from his overturned body    
 14
 
 
love overthrown
 15
by a look of detest    
 16
adieu fair, fleeting devotion  
 17
it is myself i loathe
 18
