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:

Sith Business [a breed of civil war]
etcetera

In pictures laced with sorrow
 1
In the animation of
 2
your life time,
 3
 
 
        In the bones that you lay
 4
        underground,
 5
    the truth that lays
 6
        In petty crime.
 7
 
 
In the hope that
 8
shines in your eyes
 9
In the melodies
 10
you create
 11
 
 
        In the meaning within
 12
        all the white lies,
 13
    the inconsistency
 14
        of religious fate.
 15
 
 
In the solitute
 16
of the infant,
 17
    the tension thick
 18
In the empty air
 19
 
 
      In the brazen
 20
      impossibilities
 21
      that all the world is
 22
      but that or fair.
 23
 
 
In the complete and utter
 24
dependence
 25
In the image that
 26
you paint
 27
 
 
         In all the blame,
 28
    the consciousness
 29
         of mixing fool with saint.
 30
