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:

a miss right on target
bear

one night
 1
when i was sitting
 2
in my friend's room
 3
 
 
a young lady wandered
 4
in and started to
 5
talk to us about nothing
 6
in general
 7
 
 
she was a friend
 8
of my friend
 9
 
 
and i didn't really
 10
give a shit about
 11
what she had to say
 12
 
 
but then she said
 13
she poured beer
 14
down some girl's
 15
cleavage one night
 16
 
 
and how she spit
 17
on her foot
 18
 
 
this sparked my interest
 19
and i asked if she had missed
 20
 
 
and she said as a matter of
 21
fact i did...
 22
i meant to hit the ground
 23
 
 
i stopped listening when she
 24
started to talk about her
 25
addiction to sleeping pills
 26
 
 
the only reason i listened to
 27
her in the first place
 28
is because i wanted to
 29
write a poem
 30
 
 
about how sometimes
 31
missing is better then hitting
 32
