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:

the vapor, the nebule is losing steam

blow froth off lips
and kiss
splinter twin teen pines
and wink
and and and and love
and and
but who's around up here
(and) hear
made of metal and hoodie flesh but granted leave from taking solace and whispering instructions to better men to send up meat and wood alike a light a little filtered flint and i'm going out i'm going out i'll be back i'm out and out and out and and and and and and and
sounds, i swear
