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:

CITY TO CITY
cfaber

flickering between
 1
front streets and
 2
public libraries
 3
downtown districts
 4
wailing trains
 5
and the river's edge
 6
new poems are scrawled
 7
across dumpsters
 8
the chafed pavement afternoons
 9
turned to night oil
 10
all shine and siren
 11
city to city
 12
asking,
 13
"where else will my history
 14
be written?"
 15
scratched into the back
 16
of the closet door:
 17
initials and the date.
 18
