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:

bat helmet
flourides

i roll up my pant legs and
 1
walk ankle deep into whatever
 2
it is that makes you you
 3
it feels like water getting
 4
colder around whatever
 5
bone it is that sticks out with
 6
the vein on top
 7
 
 
this song feels like
 8
drugs so i put my feet
 9
up on the walls and
 10
 
 
i don't know if you've noticed
 11
that i'm wearing brighter colors
 12
lately and i've tied a bright red
 13
string around my
 14
wrist to remind me that
 15
im not in love with anything except
 16
you and yr. sweater which had something
 17
on it in spanish that i couldn't read
