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?

per hour per month to permit
 34
desire I decided if you decide
 35
after that, after this
 36
I learned terminology

I found confusion, questionable difference
 38
 
 
ever since
 39
every day
 40
every minute
 41
I consider to conceal so many things
 42
 
 
Don't you know I love you every hour of the day
 43
 
 
Yours very sincerely,
 44
Thursday morning
 45
New York, New York.
