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:

Boston's Shadow over my Shouldars

Riding in my car, steering into sunset. Shifty pace lines fuse to one, to many, to lights decease I am by the charles I hit the gas: I song release.
Forever game the ballpark will never cease. I faster slide and dodge this red to rum peace. My night begins, I walk an unlit shadow filled world with ease.
Standing waiting passing debating. I ant sure where Iam going. The only thing that's got me by the collar is my hope my fate my relief.
Falling red orange and humility blue. I am home company to phased down wine with just a piece of true forever in-mind.
