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?

mosquitoes are a worthy candidate for swat

the net is torn

how could i notice
 4
 
 
the kid is good
 5
she has me where i want her
 6
like a ventriloquist on the radio
 7
you can’t see those lips move

there’s a small buzzing in my head
 9
and nothing big in hers
 10
 
 
hand over giggle mouth
 11
my soul is eroded
