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:

The Ruin of Ideology
unknown

The dog walked Tom Cruise
 1
with a similar disinterested obstinancy
 2
as the surrealism of Banksy's graffiti
 3
on the grimy walls of London.
 4
 
 
He felt a familiar pang,
 5
passing an empty house
 6
as a phone rang
 7
and rang,
 8
 
 
and wondered where the moths go
 9
once the light around which they whirled
 10
is extinguished.
