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:

Random Thoughts, ETC.

I'm feeling a bit cliche' today
roses are dead, violence is blue
you love me, I love you
         we're one big Barney the Bastardsaurus crew
score models.
breast way.
your fart surprised us all
kiss my aspirin taken once a day
can reduce your chance of a heart attack
her beauty stunned me
as did her cunning
tongue lashed
bittersweet trail of lies
I forgot what to write-
cog dam bee yotch
fun with ellipsis................................................................                                                 done with ellipsis...
