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:

i Conquer the World with Words
gblade

I conquer the world with words,
 1
conquer the mother tongue,
 2
verbs, nouns, syntax.
 3
 
 
I sweep away the beginning of things
 4
and with a new language
 5
that has the music
 6
of water the message of fire.
 7
 
 
I light the coming age
 8
and stop time in your eyes
 9
and wipe away the line
 10
that separates,
 11
time from this single moment.
 12
