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?

Agoraphobic Manifesto
Estrella

I can't go outside
 1
because of chemical warfare
 2
so I like to hide
 3
in Camel-filtered air
 4
 
 
when I look outside
 5
the neighbors stare
 6
they look inside
 7
they know I'm there
 8
 
 
I'm no good outside
 9
I hate the light
 10
I thrive inside
 11
an artificial night
 12
 
 
if I go outside
 13
the world could be ugly
 14
so I'll stay inside
 15
save the worry
 16
