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?

Being 17 and answering life's question
hearmyheart

with a green white roll
 1
slowly diminished
 2
15 minutes ago
 3
thoughts of astronomy
 4
and the existence
 5
that we say we know
 6
fill
 7
a meakened mans mind.
 8
no purpose of you
 9
or another
 10
has significant value,
 11
for
 12
where is it
 13
that we 'advance'
 14
to.
 15
Why is it
 16
better? or further
 17
for that matter.
 18
Who says we get closer
 19
to what it is
 20
we seek?
 21
I say I
 22
live
 23
for me.
 24
And this green white roll
 25
brings me closer
 26
to the advances
 27
of what it is
 28
I seek.
 29
A green white roll
 30
is all the technology
 31
I need.
