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:

Opposite Day
Xxsrednam

Don't look over there
 1
To not see what you don't want to
 2
It can be here
 3
Unlike that fountain
 4
He won't avoid you
 5
If you don't look
 6
But you can see it
 7
In all of your sight
 8
Comprehension is impossible
 9
Not in our time and age
 10
Don't look to the future
 11
To see our past.
 12
 
 
Whatever you do,
 13
Opposite Day
 14
Won't test your mind
 15
As long as you keep on moving.
 16
Forget now
 17
That everything is as it seems
 18
On that horrible day
 19
Not known as
 20
Opposite Day.
 21
