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:

pseudo-intellectual
brentleyj

we talked zen buddhist conjecture
 1
finding ourselves in the waves
 2
she colored the sky and her heart azure
 3
 
 
we knew only pop culture
 4
i asked her and she said we should say
 5
we talked zen buddhist conjecture
 6
 
 
we tried to elicit from the wind our laughter
 7
we sat still until becoming cliché
 8
she colored the sky and her heart azure
 9
 
 
the night from the day was our rapture
 10
we became our own escape
 11
we talked zen buddhist conjecture
 12
 
 
i asked and she framed some architecture
 13
from poetic crayon disarray
 14
she colored the sky and her heart azure
 15
 
 
and we disappeared in calculated measure
 16
our lives illustrations of exponential decay
 17
as we talked zen buddhist conjecture
 18
and she colored the sky and our hearts azure
 19
