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:

Band Camp
hardenedpain

sweaty bodies and achy feet
 1
tired arms and sunburns turning into tans
 2
crazy moments and side-splitting laughter
 3
random water ballon fights and marching drill
 4
until it becomes memory
 5
looking forward to weird jokes that came from
 6
nowhere and long bumpy busrides
 7
freezing at football games and stressing over competitions and how we'll get our homework done
 8
wednsday night practice
 9
sadness about the last show of year and
 10
memories that last forever
 11
thats what band camps about
 12
