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:

When no means not a snowball's chance in hell.
sybarite

dating you would violate
 1
my personal policy
 2
on office romance
 3
where you openly buy in
 4
to their propaganda, I mock
 5
I only pretend
 6
to be a team player
 7
of all the jobs I've hated
 8
this one has the best paycheck
 9
 
 
you react to my independence
 10
as though it's tabled for amendment
 11
day-dreaming ever-afters
 12
as I imagine
 13
stabbing you in the face
 14
with a fork
 15
rockin' the riffs
 16
of a heavy-metal solo
 17
you're strumming
 18
bicycle built for two
 19
I can't hear
 20
 
 
you
 21
imagine me lonely, I am
 22
not
 23
needy enough
 24
I've witnessed
 25
your savior complex
 26
and I'm the wrong shade
 27
of crazy
 28
 
 
you'd never understand
 29
being abandoned
 30
for a good book
 31
