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:

pixels
unknown

letters and numbers dripping on my head
 1
mostly letters
 2
filling my eyes and stuffing my ears
 3
pressing on my brain
 4
and squeezing out my own letters and numbers
 5
slopped on the ground
 6
 
 
the weight of all these millions of tiny pixels
 7
cascades down from my crown
 8
tearing hair and skin away
 9
as it continues to the ground
 10
until i am stripped
 11
wordless
 12
and silent
 13
