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:

Being 17 and answering life's question

with a green white roll
slowly diminished
15 minutes ago
thoughts of astronomy
and the existence
that we say we know
a meakened mans mind.
no purpose of you
or another
has significant value,
where is it
that we 'advance'
Why is it
better? or further
for that matter.
Who says we get closer
to what it is
we seek?
I say I
for me.
And this green white roll
brings me closer
to the advances
of what it is
I seek.
A green white roll
is all the technology
I need.
