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:

stroke (mike .)

like curare they talk about the tingle,
a numb spriggle on the lizps and face and arm
and rolling down i watch the planet disc slowshes into joopetow whats
word? i can't get off the floor.
the day after myarm hurts funny but i can type
but i'm still home and without a perscription... no doc.
a typing i'm doing involves forgetting a word when
my other brainbloc drops an inch
the barrier it makes between the two
keeps out moustique how you say?
six days laghter i'm back to norgmal
thank goosh and how would i know?
