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?

Casablanca
unknown

In all of three weeks
 1
I want you
 2
 
 
Imagine me
 3
nuzzled against you
 4
as we watch
 5
casablanca
 6
 
 
To tell you
 7
that the last thing
 8
I said to
 9
the man i last kissed
 10
was
 11
"Allah Ma'ik ya Habibi"
 12
 
 
a year and a half ago
 13
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
And you
 14
don't write
 15
 
 
And I
 16
can not peel my eyes
 17
off the computer screen
 18
