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?

The Gaian
C

Silent as a native,
 1
I go.
 2
Ego, silent
 3
as a native.
 4
I go
 5
silently respecting
 6
ear, skin,
 7
and kin.
 8
I do
 9
my best not to crack
 10
a leaf, or break
 11
a branch.
 12
I ride the silent
 13
air around
 14
my body-
 15
the planet
 16
spins in harmony
 17
with quiet moon.
 18
