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:

yes, this is life

Damn the magic word
as I pretty please insanity
into your rotten core,
apple's whore, bring me alive
for a moment, as I bring
your world crashing down
on him, dead as the limp
penis on expose', Desirée
my love I wish you
all the best in hell.
Take your spell and shove
it up whatever hole you want,
this is America right?
freedom over rated as
shit gets thrown at
the good, leave out the bad,
hello ignorance and stupidity,
and before I end in rigidity,
let me remind you how
this all started:
you fucked with me
and I couldn't fuck back.
