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:

my excavation today
SweetPain

love love oh glorious love
 1
you found me here
 2
with him
 3
 
 
on porch stoops,
 4
bug bites and freezies.
 5
 
 
now the leaves are gone
 6
and so's my mind.
 7
 
 
i am sitting here wondering
 8
how i got here,
 9
grown and changed,
 10
loved and lived.
 11
 
 
knowing all these things weren't real
 12
and that the real
 13
end note,
 14
 
 
would be one i never planned before?
 15
 
 
love love oh glorious love
 16
tell me this
 17
you are no surprise
 18
you are growth slow and deep
 19
inside of me
 20
a trust unknown but faith could share.
 21
