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:

Concatenation 2
unknown

Gravel road,
 1
dappled sunshine.
 2
Countless versions of green.
 3
High banks:
 4
earth falls away
 5
from roots,
 6
flesh of the land
 7
revealed.
 8
Trees lean
 9
into the road.
 10
Truck windows down,
 11
wind scours my skin,
 12
forces stray hair
 13
back and massages
 14
my forehead.
 15
Fingers splayed,
 16
I hold hands
 17
with the wind.
 18
