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?

was it not this way
EricB

nothing changes
 1
then nothing is the same
 2
it’s all dark matter
 3
left unexplained
 4
 
 
express
 5
it matters not
 6
the words
 7
the notes
 8
the colors
 9
the meaning
 10
 
 
a sad mournful song
 11
with a quirky smile at the end
 12
 
 
3 becomes 4
 13
and we go on
 14
forever changed
 15
 
 
soon to question
 16
how
 17
was it not this way
