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:

First dates should b ice cream not coffee.

I take all my first dates
for some Ice cream
not coffee.
Why? You say.
Well a freakin coffee
is just too damn formal don't you think?
Instead of being playful
and licking Ice cream
were talking about our pathetic lifestories
and trying to be " in sync".
Why go out for coffee
and wear cheesy ass sweaters?
When we can go for sum ice cream
and afterwards play amazing miniature golf
in this fucking awesome weather.
