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:

(optional)
unknown

last night the ground was ice  
 1
on my bare feet
 2
the moon fit into my eye
 3
and the west star lit my path
 4
i sigh'd a deep sigh
 5
counted my breaths
 6
while i thumbed through
 7
the pages of scrawled memories
 8
in my head
 9
so hastily chiseled
 10
with bits of stone missing
 11
here and there
 12
i am unconditional
 13
