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?

Consumption and Desire
jocelyn_joy

I took off my top in a bar last night,
 1
 
 
I'm not sure why, two barmaids
 2
brought pitchers of water and poured them
 3
down my back.
 4
 
 
Staring.  Cheering.  Pouring.
 5
 
 
I wanted to go home, I stood.
 6
Wet.
 7
Surrounded by men with drooling
 8
erections and undid my
 9
fly, as two more servers arrived
 10
with more
 11
water,
 12
and glazed me.
