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:

Don't be like me
damples

I'm here in my electric chair
 1
You don't know why, don't really care
 2
Drive on by, like I'm not there
 3
Don't be like me
 4
 
 
Work yourself into the ground
 5
Your wire cage goes round and round
 6
Burned-out and so tightly wound
 7
Don't be like me
 8
 
 
What goes up must then come down
 9
Defibrillator, patient's gown
 10
A private room for you in-town
 11
Don't be like me
 12
