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:

Apartment 4 Rent
DeformedLion

she gets fucked
 1
by a tea-cup
 2
everynight when palm-frond
 3
motherfuck gets back
 4
from nowhere,
 5
 
 
he of the sapphire tongue
 6
and doleful eyes.
 7
he likes to spoon her
 8
sugar,
 9
swishes it in with a
 10
gyroscopic motion,
 11
swish swish swish.
 12
like a "YES YES YES"
 13
pounding the inside of my
 14
porcelain brain.
 15
 
 
that's the sound of connectivity,
 16
and fuck,
 17
if that's not love then
 18
blue-shadeface surely
 19
twists into heartmap--
 20
   small ex for soul?
 21
 
 
(light knocks)
 22
of fists and fucks, yes?
 23
