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:

for me
DeformedLion

the world hurts too much to be wearing pants
 1
o
 2
world, downcast, o
 3
forlorn beatrice, i called you shylock
 4
slight me for it
 5
in a thousand graces
 6
by the blankets
 7
alms of cool air
 8
over toes
 9
 
 
the government. though saying truth
 10
is harder and harder, i relapse;
 11
 
 
  o beat
 12
  o blanket
 13
 
 
  what say, nay
 14
  what thrust of glib spit
 15
  ancient or dust
 16
  cloaked
 17
  would you wet this
 18
  peasant soul for?
 19
 
 
like what is with all the "o"s?
 20
 
 
has your vibrator stolen your throat?
 21
 
 
like, really,
 22
where the fuck did mystery go?
 23
 
 
    too hard, she said
 24
 
 
was like:
 25
i haven't even taken my pants off yet.
 26
