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:

Arabian Nights
Ajambo

Chickens in the den,
 1
ignite the fire in my heart.
 2
Netskyiam ignites the fire in my pants.
 3
He looks for lost treasures,
 4
by solving the riddle of my sphinxter,
 5
as he ventures through my treeless forest,
 6
he massages my great pyramids.
 7
As I rub his magic lamp,
 8
his genie appears and fills my soul,
 9
with his genie juices.
