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?

 1
to expect my poetry to make sense.
 2
I doubt I would even be writing
 3
poetry if I were not so intrigued
 4
by language from the artist's perspective. I'm
 5
much more of a musician than a
 6
poet, but I am continually fascinated by
 7
the way thoughts are confined to small
 8
lexical packages and then catapulted onto the
 9
canvas in certain fashions to create art.
