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:

Eyes Like Mine
Hundawg

My cake is sharpened
 1
My pencil baked
 2
My fists upon your ugly face
 3
I clean my room
 4
The dust bunnies come
 5
They grab ahold
 6
When I try to run
 7
I was scared
 8
They were having fun
 9
I cough and choke
 10
I cry and scream
 11
I wake up, it's just a dream
 12
My pencil is nowhere to be found
 13
What's this cake doing on the ground?
 14
I get mad and start to clean my room
 15
When I turn around
 16
There they are
 17
Bunnies of doom
 18
My mind is fucked
 19
I hear voices, Listen...
 20
If you've got eyes like mine
 21
They see it twisted...
 22
