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:

damn you, dairy farms

since they never picked up the recycling today
i decided to throw stuff in the trash
like milk cartons, but not the cardboard ones
that are a horrible deal for what you get,
the plastic jugs, which are still a horrible deal
for what you get.
why are the cows being assholes?
