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:

Mentally challenged

In my chair
bed sores
on my ass
but I like it.
My body floating
through the air
almost fun
I never saw the car.
I am daring god
to take my pain
Ten long years
never will be the same
My parents
Suing the Government
So they can get a BMW
Ten long years
never will talk
I hate them so much.
