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:

Talking in the Real World
Luxy

I’m glad drugs
 1
are more important to me than you
 2
and your potty mouthed whores
 3
holding your dick close to their hearts.
 4
I might not give good head
 5
but I sure as hell
 6
hog the bed better then they do.
 7
And where’s the love you promised
 8
to replace my powder
 9
that you used by the kitchen sink.
 10
I used to draw pictures of flowers
 11
and give them to people
 12
who meant something to me.
 13
But now I’m aging cheaply
 14
and you never got one.
 15
Perhaps music really will save us all
 16
but until then pay my tab,
 17
I’m not drunk enough to leave,
 18
but I sure as hell am empty enough for you.
 19
