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:

A Season as a Dream
elysium

Lost in some desolate meaning
 1
that feigns untouchable
 2
mystery trance
 3
 
 
Like a Religion;
 4
A styrofoam certainty
 5
 
 
Yet betrayed by the departure
 6
of a reasoning consciousness
 7
 
 
In a place where
 8
skies are only dream
 9
 
 
And shadows
 10
are an evolution,
 11
crossing through a storm
 12
of switchblade
 13
convulsion
 14
 
 
Insanity or sanity
 15
makes no difference
 16
when a world revolves
 17
against perception
 18
 
 
on waves
 19
of static charge
 20
 
 
Like painted traumas
 21
to some far away canvas
 22
 
 
that one can touch,
 23
yet still untouched
 24
remains
 25
 
 
an infinite
 26
    
 27
    paralysis
 28
