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:

deaf around trumpets
unknown

they will tell me
 1
I belong in the fire
 2
away from you
 3
 
 
that separate flames
 4
will fly us
 5
into the unholy hills
 6
and frighten us forever,
 7
 
 
burning our souls
 8
with sinful prayers
 9
 
 
casting an emptiness
 10
over us, as black
 11
as those born blind.
 12
