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?

Attempting to refute Copernican Theory
beckettnyc

which way is the right way?
 1
the god-like Sun
 2
cyclopean
 3
burns deep into the
 4
flesh and makes the sane
 5
lift up their hands to madness
 6
 
 
torn down trees forced together
 7
like an alchemist's experiment
 8
stick together
 9
hang on for dear life
 10
 
 
                                                     stranded in the middle of the nowhere
 11
 
 
the Sun shines with
 12
the heart of a fool
 13
A dubious smile
 14
crosses my lips
 15
as darkness nears
 16
