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:

receding daylight
unknown

Note the sighing of day's retreat
 1
Color the grey blackness of night
 2
Drunken thievery, my feat
 3
Of gleaming lights, beckoning frights
 4
 
 
To begin to stir in this sea
 5
Of a waning tumultuous falling
 6
Baptized with his promise to me
 7
Survival his only calling
 8
 
 
No white bursting of the stars
 9
In this sea of a fading fading grasp
 10
No redeeming god, no ark
 11
Messed up with each other perhaps
 12
